I’m not keen on the expression new normal, but it does sum up how things have changed since this time last year.
At that point I had a fairly successful business offering consultancy and training in my speciality, which is sales.
How things change. Working on the assumption of adapt and thrive, or vanish, I set up a joint venture offering online training courses in a range of business subjects. Take a moment to watch the video and try out a course for free on http://www.anewcolour.co.uk/online-training/
I’m very interested in language, both spoken and body language. I read a few weeks ago that the under 30s haven’t got a clue what ‘bonk’ means. Not too much of a tragedy that one.
The word of the year as defined by Collins Dictionary is, wait for it, drumroll……………………….lockdown. Well there’s a surprise.
The picture shows four different words that all mean a similar thing, but most of us will have a preference for one or another. Listening to the words that people use and using similar language is a way of rapidly creating rapport.

In the UK lockdown began in March, just as the days started to get longer and we had a lot more daylight. We were lucky enough to have a fairly good summer, even if the weather in August was tropical one day then winter the next.
Lockdown in winter may mean the chance to completely hibernate for some of us, but not me. Seriously considering buying one of those lamps that gives the effect of daylight. It doesn’t bear contemplating.
There were some interesting posts today on LinkedIn about how our most used vocabulary has changed in 2020. “Agile” was a favourite; businesses have made some tough choices over the last few months in order to survive.
I had only vaguely considered offering online training in the past, but I soon saw that it was going to be the way ahead. Probably for some time.
