Remote Work: Connecting with Introverts and Those Less Likely to Speak Up
Listening is not enough when the most desperate voices are likely not speaking up or coming to you in this remote environment.
You must keep an ear to the ground.
You must make note of those you haven’t heard from, and reach out to them directly.
You must open the door and invite them in.
You must share your own experiences and struggles to help level the playing field.
And, most importantly, you must be human.
Right now, it’s important to lead with your heart and your gut — not your brain. Right now, it’s important to identify those that need your support. Right now, it’s important to show up up for them and lift them up. Be their sounding board. Let them bring you in.
Be helpful. Be humble. Be human.
