The ratio of work on business problems to the development of staff can be out of whack, says leadership and executive coach Lisa Koss, co-founder and a partner at the consulting firm Ontos Global of Berkeley.

“We need to be doing more than just solving problem … and instead transform a business issue into development of people,” says Ms. Koss.

“When you look at for-profit business, it tends to be all about … the business results, and not as much focused on how being curious about what people are bringing,” she says.

That curiosity can be transformative, both for a business and its employees, she says.

As the business world emerges slowly from the COVID-19 pandemic, recognizing psychological realities and dynamics is critical to bringing teams together, she says.
