Eight months since the start of the pandemic and many of us are craving those casual chats at the water cooler, the quick connects in the cafeteria, as well as networking lunches or drinks. The truth is that how and where we work will be forever changed due to COVID and we need to adapt to new ways of working and this includes how we network.
At the beginning of the Pandemic, remote work seemed to be a temporary situation – a sprint we needed to just get through. Then we realized it was going to be more like a marathon continuing for quite some time. Now, it is just life. As workers, as leaders, we need to embrace this new reality and learn how to be successful.
As Anne Warren and I have been researching the new normal, the reality of the length, depth, and complexity of the Pandemic – now coupled with a Worldwide Recession and Civil Unrest – continues to require a different leadership focus.
