Managers are tasked with leading their teams through massive change, uncertainty, and, in many cases, a transition to a virtual environment. Managers may be confronted with shifting staff roles and responsibilities, maintaining influence with key stakeholders virtually, and continuing to create a positive community environment for their teams in a virtual space.
