Strive for structure
It is helpful to provide even more structure to the day and our projects to keep our team on task and striving to achieve what we can, even with new obstacles. I do more check-ins on project status and give more praise for achieving even modest goals under the circumstances. And I provide regular reassurance about the health and survival of the business and the security of my team’s jobs. – Linley Jones, The Linley Jones Firm P.C
