10 Resources for Managers of Remote Teams

10 Resources for Managers of Remote Teams

According to Gallup polls, the percentage of full-time employees working from home because of COVID-19 closures increased from 33% to 61% in just a few weeks. The sudden shift to remote work has been a significant adjustment, not just for employees.

CEOs, senior leaders, managers, and team leads are facing new stresses and increasingly complex challenges on top of the uncertainty and anxiety caused by the pandemic. Leaders are being called upon to remain calm and commanding while also displaying vulnerability and empathy, communicating a clear plan in a rapidly changing environment, and looking out for the well-being of employees with who they cannot physically interact.
