Title: Working with Your Team Remotely

Description: Let’s continue the discussion around remote support and how you make it work. This month, we’ll focus on how you work with your team – how have your collaboration objectives with your team shifted given our work-at-home reality? How effective have they been? What would you do differently? And what has surprised you?  Add your comments and questions to the call document in advance of the start of the meeting or anytime throughout the call!

Participants need not subscribe to a particular track to participate in calls. Additional details for track members, including notes documents and any pre-call activities, will be distributed ahead of the call via the email lists and other communication channels within each track.
