With all the doom and gloom associated with 2020, it’s hard to think of much, or anything positive to take away from it. You can call me the nauseating optimist, but if learning in a way that shapes us and makes us more aware, and more resilient counts for positivity, then there is a significant silver lining to what has happened to work in 2020, and how that can lower our work stress in 2021 (and beyond).
