COVID-19 has turned management upside-down, forcing managers of every stripe to reinvent team culture via videoconference and messaging apps. For the extroverted hands-on manager, this new virtual milieu lacks physicality and personal touch. Gone are the handshakes and high-fives that once motivated team performance. 

Without the benefit of water-cooler chats, impromptu huddles and casual social interactions, team members are likely to feel disconnected. Left adrift in a sea of emails and endless virtual meetings, the fun of work is nonexistent. While some workers thrive in this environment, others miss the routine and hustle of a structured workday. Being alone in front of a screen all day can erode confidence and promote feelings of disengagement. Sadly, many team leaders are unaware of this until it impacts their bottom line.

100+ BigCo CEOs Predict Dire Consequences if Congress Fails to Pass Small Business Pandemic Relief


More than 100 current and former top executives at major U.S. companies called on Congress Monday (Aug. 4, 2020) to pass long-term relief to ensure small businesses survive the coronavirus pandemic.


In a letter to congressional leaders of both parties, the CEOs warned of significant consequences to the economy if Congress doesn’t immediately act to save small businesses.

“By Labor Day, we foresee a wave of permanent closures if the right steps are not taken soon,” they wrote. “Allowing small businesses to fail will turn temporary job losses into permanent ones. By year-end, the domino effect of lost jobs — as well as the lost services and lost products that small businesses provide — could be catastrophic.”

Their bill would extend the period for the hardest-hit businesses whose revenues have declined by at least 25 percent to use their paycheck protection funds and meet requirements for loan forgiveness.

In the letter, the CEOs said that legislation should include federally guaranteed loans “that will enable small businesses to transform and sustain themselves through 2020 and well into 2021.”

The company executives said an extension of the Paycheck Protection Program would be helpful, but more significant and sustained support is needed. They call for federally guaranteed loans, at favorable terms, that will enable small businesses to transform and sustain themselves; flexibility in

We have seen unprecedented change unfold right before our eyes over the last several months. Our ideas of a world shaped by certainty have been shaken, and notions of stable business, streamlined operations and competitive pricing models have been shattered. Amidst the chaos is an incredible opportunity, an opportunity to reflect upon what the world needs and what you can offer. As an entrepreneur myself, I truly believe that we have an innate responsibility to help our clients and customers arrive at their best results and expectations. Some of the lessons I have learned this year have been harsh, and ones I will never forget. I have also observed the breakthroughs some organizations have been able to create and reflected upon what has always worked. Here are my recommendations on what the new rules of the game are and how you can differentiate yourself as the post-pandemic marketplace continues to evolve.

Women empowering women is more than a hashtag. It is a mission I am on to bring about change and lead every person to believe they have what it takes to follow their passions. We can help one another in so many ways. One of them is to support each other’s dreams and give support without expectation or attachment. The more you connect authentically to those around you and grow in your relationships, the more women will heal and change the world. So when I meet other women doing the same thing, it fills me with a sense of joy that needs to be shared.  One of these beautiful women is Heather Sanders.
