Smallish firm that just merged with another smallish firm. We're switching tax software and about 3/4 of my team is anxious about any change after a couple of roller coaster years full of changes already (pre-merger and unrelated to it.)
Anything you recommend to ease the transition? If it makes a difference for your advice, staff is on the older side. They had buy in on the software and plenty of demos and time to check it out and test it etc. But implementing it is making them anxious

Those of you assigned a coach as part of high performing leader programs...how much do you trust the coach?

Throughout my on-going job search, I’ve learned that the recruiters or whoever is your point of contact with a company, owe you an explanation. It does take quite a bit of time to personalize each cover letter. I understand they have so many applications to go through but we deserve solid explanation as to why we weren’t “a good fit for their needs at the moment.” It just is t a good enough answer for me and seems as though the company/organization doesn’t care.

How do digital nomads work from anywhere? After two years of this whole WFH thing, I realize that I need a proper routine, an actual WFH setup with a second monitor, a ring light, a suitable desk, an ergonomic chair, stationery, etc.
Don't get me wrong, I love the flexibility of remote work, and I'm not sure I will ever go back to 5 days a week in an office (or even one day a week, for that matter.) But, how do digital nomads adapt by packing up and going so frequently between places?

Are you making new friends during this time? If so how? My current friend group (or at least I thought they were) haven't reached out to me during this hard time, and it's always me reaching out to them. So I've come to the conclusion that I need to find new people.
I realized that a lot of people have nothing to do with their lives apart from work & commute. Just because they want to work all day, I don’t, so stop wasting my time with useless calls/small talks.
