Some top notes from the article:
With full teams of people suddenly working from home, leaders weren’t sure how to manage from afar. A common, knee-jerk reaction was to tighten the reins. It quickly became clear that employees didn’t like the inferred lack of trust and disempowerment. Leaders have spent the last two years honing their leadership skills, and acting less like watchdogs. They are seeing the value of empowering their employees, and seeing the reward in higher productivity and engagement.
