We really enjoyed having Andy Rice from Black Box Consulting join us yesterday to talk about ‘COVID & the Future of Work’ for our second Hummingbird Hour Conversation! In this conversation, we cover the ups and downs of virtual work, and the reality that virtual work, in many forms, is here to stay – which is a good thing. Andy shares the tips he gives to those hoping to be good managers as they lead through these new and uncertain times.
