A tactical approach seeks to tackle the problems. A strategic approach seeks to eliminate or reduce the cause.
A tactical approach might plaster over some cracks, but more likely it will create a false sense of security because we see lots of ‘good’ activity taking place, when below the surface, those cracks to become gaping canyons.
The Great Resignation is a case in point.
If you have a cracked petrol tank in your car, do you keep filling it up with more petrol, or do you replace/repair the petrol tank? This is the thinking we need to apply to wellbeing at work.
