One in two of us will be a better person once lockdown is over…yet there are mixed emotions as to how that move to being a better person will take shape. Some senior leaders have debated the meaning of ‘better’. One Director offered that “Better” implies moral improvement but it might equally mean more effective in achieving personal (selfish) goals. Another CEO reflected more on the wider impact lockdown has had on her attitude to life in terms of learning to slow down and take time to live life, not just fill it. It’s fair to say that we can all learn from that…

One Managing Director from a Loyalty Insights Agency observed,I’d like to think that Covid-19 and the resulting lockdown has made me more aware of the importance of relationships and social connections, things that I probably took more for granted previously. Also the positive impact of healthy relationships on one’s mental health and the importance of tolerance of understanding. So, I hope I might emerge a ‘better’ friend, daughter, sibling and colleague as a result.
Post lockdown, do you believe you will emerge a better person?
