Why my clock stopped

16th February 2021

Why my clock stopped

Last week my clock stopped. I had bought it a few years ago and it was ideal for my yoga studio (yes I teach yoga as well as run Conduct Matters) so I was very frustrated. 

I was annoyed and told my husband I would have to look for a new one. Then he pointed out that maybe it just needed a new battery. He was right my clock just needed a little boost, some new energy and now it's back to full health. 

I had made the assumption that because it wasn't working the problem was terminal. I am seeing this all around at the moment. The impact of Covid-19 is really bringing us down. People are losing their jobs and those still in work are finding it hard going, often working longer hours and/or juggling round home schooling. It feels so draining that we can feel as if we are sinking deeper and deeper into a hole.

But I have realised that just like my clock we can all find something to give us a boost. Whether it's a zoom call with the family, an online yoga class or a walk in the sunshine - we find things that can lift us. The focus of my business is to help firm's create a culture where staff are happy and feel motivated, this feeds into customer service. It makes good sense to have a happy and supportive work culture.

I've been quiet for the last few weeks. This isn't because things are terminal but just because after so long living with a society severely impacted by Covid-19 I was tired. I wanted to quieten and enjoy some calmness, take a short break from chats about 200 page FCA reports. Now I'm back, and ready to talk about vulnerability and operational resilience. I've also got new e-learning software to play with - I'm just about to start transferring all my learning onto the new software and have already uploaded a client's inhouse conduct risk awareness course onto my e-learning platform using the new software. They will be able to enrol learners and track their progress. 

The next few months looks exciting for me.
