I am a hands-on leader who is not in her comfort zone because of the necessary shift to remote work. My team is working from home for the foreseeable future, our volunteers are serving remotely, and I feel very disconnected from them. It is impacting my ability to stay connected and inspired which is my driving force. Seeking actionable advice for staying connected and improving overall morale of entire team.
I have been with the organization for 19 years and have been a successful leader up to this point. Our mission and goals remain relevant during the pandemic and we are preparing for a likely increase in the number of children who will require our services. I have always embraced organizational capacity building projects as an important step in achieving short and long term goals. My own growth as a leader and executive is critical at this time.
