    Managing & Leading Teams

    Diverse backgrounds, various personalities, differing work styles - leading teams effectively can be challenging at times, especially for those who have had to adapt to leading teams remotely. Like any other aspect of your role, it's a skill that can be developed over time, and improved by hearing and sharing what has worked well and what hasn't.
