The fact that so many of us are working from home poses new challenges, he says, such as the risk of ‘online presenteeism’ — feeling you have to stay glued to your screen and always working — or simply not knowing if a colleague is having a hard time. He says changing attitudes and processes is important for leadership at all levels of a business.
