050: Effective Remote Management and Leadership



On today’s episode, Thom Singer joins CEO and author Stacey Hanke to address the challenges of staying connected and productive while working remotely.  The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every aspect of our professional lives, and Stacey has ideas to help both managers and team members make a more effective transition from the normal work environment to a remote setting.  It is more important than ever for teams to stay connected, and Stacey offers actionable ways that managers can effectively lead remotely and that employees can remain informed, engaged, and effective while working from home.
