Teams large and small are bound to go through some kind of transition in their history, and managing not only the changes themselves, but also the staff reactions and adjustments to that change, can be challenging. This session will highlight three common transitions: The introduction of new management staff, and how that impacts mindset and workflows; moving employees from an on-site working situation to working remotely, and how to manage staff through and after that transition; and managing staff through changes in personnel and the physical office with a focus on handling different personalities and employee morale.
