Applying the Change Curve to "Return to the Workplace"

It has been a full year since the work arrangements as we knew them were abruptly disrupted.  And in that year, most people have adapted in ways that worked for them. They are no longer the same people with the same habits as they were before the pandemic. People have evolved and become comfortable with their new arrangements.

I wanted to get involved with a local community of OCM professionals who I can learn from and, through volunteer work, help continue to build an impactful OCM presence here in Ohio! Could you describe you
