Major Takeaway

A good, strong, authentic leader communicates proactively authentically transparently about what is going to happen and what are the kinds that needed to be done in approaching it.

And as we’re learning now, a lot of the work can be done  independently and we can collaborate with each other using different tools and platforms. And that seems to be the future of work.

And the biggest opportunity is going to come out of this is we’re going to reinvent what the workplace looks like.
