COVID-19 has introduced managers and supervisors to new challenges as we strive to keep virtual teams motivated, engaged and connected. Our remote reality has required many leaders to stretch ourselves beyond our limits and outside our comfort zones, figuratively and literally.
Research suggests that the most important aspect of keeping employees engaged is making them feel part of the bigger picture. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true – a lack of engagement can lead to increased feelings of isolation and disconnection. In this video, NLC trainer and organizational culture expert Margarita Sarmiento shares how managers can engage and motivate employees in this virtual working environment.
