So now that we’re halfway through the first week of 2021 and the wave of “Happy New Year!” has subsided, we wanted to engage everyone with what we think is very important exercise. If you haven’t paused and truly reflected on how the events and circumstances of 2020 has changed you, now is the time to do it.

We’ve asked the Relate Team, along with some of our clients and friends “What has 2020 taught you?”and it was no surprise as to what the real emphasis 2020 was for them. Across the board, everyone made reference to one or two things that had nothing to do with business, or even the global crisis. The theme was so clear that we did a Word Cloud of the responses, which you can see just before the last slide. Have a look and see if you feel the same way and if you do let us know what 2020 taught you in the comments.

Thanks again for keeping your relationship with us and always remember that Relationship is more important.
