The baby, the bathwater, and the new normal

I thought I’d share with you some reflections that have arisen for me over the last few weeks, based on conversations with clients and fellow practitioners. It strikes me that, as we attempt to make sense of the unprecedented upheaval that Covid-19 has brought with it, we are each doing so with no roadmap and, often, alone. And, for sure, we are all adjusting differently, using the best strategies we know. However, I have had a growing sense of a kind of common pattern forming in the singular stories I am hearing, and it´s this that I want to reflect on with you here. Bear with me, this is a little longer than usual!
