The experiences of 2020 and 2021 have changed everything about how we think about work. Do we really "need" people on-site for teams to be high performing? How do we know if people are productive if we cannot SEE them being productive? Should "cameras on" be required, or can it do more harm than good? When it comes to people returning to the office, what is equitable, and fair in terms of policies and accommodations? How can you build trust and lead effectively when my team is scattered across the country or the world.

How we define "normal" has been shifting and evolving over the last 18 months, and will continue to shift for months to come, if not years! Join our panel of leaders who will share their experiences about leading through a pandemic, about ways to support your team members in uncertain times, as well as answer your specific questions.
