Some top notes from the article:
It’s been well over a year since the pandemic swept through the workforce and turned the status quo on its head. Many of us have been working remotely through digital collaboration tools like Basecamp, Slack and Zoom for so long that it’s hard to remember what it felt like to go into the office every day. Yet most of us can agree that the office felt much more “natural” than collaborating on Zoom.
The problem is that many of us still haven’t learned to take the pulse of a Zoom room the way we used to gauge the emotional energy of an in-person office meeting. The good news is that it’s not as hard as you might think. Humans are incredibly adaptive; just look at how digital technologies have transformed the way we connect outside of work over the past few decades.
