The business environment is intrinsically chaotic and constantly changing. And the economic fallout around Covid-19 is making it even more so.

The sense of uncertainty and lack of control increases stress at every level.

In this video, Ian Webster suggests three steps we can take as managers (and parents) to reduce the uncertainty employees (and children) experience and allow them more control over their work and decisions. And, like most employee-engagement processes, they are not complex. They are simple steps we can take every day.
