Yann Toutant and I explore what it means to work remotely in a time of Covid-19 and what we are taking from it.
- Yann Toutant joins me again–our previous conversations are
- Grappling with compassion
- The consequences of being forced to work remote without notice
- It’s difficult if you haven’t done it before
- It’s even more difficult to start without warning
- Yann does not see the present version of people working from home (during Covid-19) as the remote work he advocates
- He believes home is the worst place to work from
- It’s extremely challenging and should not be confused with regular remote work
- Additional levels of stress and complexity
- A review of Yann’s process by which people and companies can go remote
- Getting rid of the energy that has accumulated at the end of the day
- Who we are being–explored more in conversation with Alexis Monville and the book The Anatomy of Peace
- Where are we coming from?
- A place of War or Peace
- Who do I want to be as I go through this unique time?
- It’s here and it’s not going away
- Where do you want to invest your energy?
- A great time to be more focused on the being instead of the doing
- “Who is the person I want to BE today?” instead of “What do I want to DO today?”
- Using this time to practice being with discomfort
- If confinement (quarantine) ended tomorrow, what would you do?
- Would you go back to the same things?
- What would you like to be different?
- How will you prepare?
- Not wanting to leave the boat after Yann’s four weeks confinement crossing the Atlantic
- New smells
- Having become comfortable with his internal journey and needing to venture outside again
- An important reminder and acknowledgment from Yann about the context from which he and John are having this conversation
- Are we suffering based on what we fear could happen in the future or what is actually happening in the present?
- “The future is the present, under construction”
- Possessions vs. experience
- The increased societal cost of physical distancing
- Consciously choosing
- Welcome home to yourself–take advantage of this opportunity (if it fits your situation)
- The value of doing our own work AND the value and benefit of working with a coach (not trying to do it all on your own)
- Yann has two coaches
- The power of silence
- Clown Syndrome
- Filling or not filling the space
- Silence helps the other person speak from their heart instead of their head–tapping into the unconscious
