Managing Remote Workforces with Strong Leaders


Along with the many changes that COVID-19 has brought into our lives, the way that we live and work has most likely been forever altered.

To increase safety, reduce risks and adhere to government regulations, many companies have shifted most of their work venues from the physical office to their workers' homes. Some have set up a hybrid model, where employees rotate and work part of the time at the office and part of the time at home.

Initially, this was viewed as a temporary solution that would continue only during the time of the pandemic. However, more and more, many

Some may have had prior experience working remotely, while for others this was a completely new challenge.  


As many regions across the country start efforts to reopen, employees may find themselves back in the office very soon. These changes are likely to be implemented gradually, allowing for many to have a blended model where they shift between working from home and working in the office.

Work From Home

Working from home doesn’t mean training or development should stop.

Distance: real and perceived 

As I help people, both individual contributors and managers, acclimate to the new reality of working remotely, I am reminded of the three ways people can see distance between employees even on the same team. The current experience we are all sharing in working remotely and trying to conduct business as usual in unusual circumstances will make many pause and reflect on what it means to be ‘distant’ from our team, our organization, and our closest work allies and friends.
