At the onset of the global pandemic, leaders worldwide were forced to transition to a virtual workplace quickly and shift their employees into fully remote teams. While this change has been more challenging for some than others, many leaders have successfully navigated their teams through these changes and are preparing to do it once again when the world slowly opens up again.
