Unscramble the Blue Letters

And leaders, let me share three tips -- rather three must-do’s -- to get the future of work right. Number one, tsurt your people. Millions of workers and employees have proved their trustworthiness since March 2020. But even with that, so many leaders want to go backwards. As part of the work I do, I've spoken with hundreds of leaders over the past 18 mntohs, and I get some really crazy questions. One is, "Well, Debbie, how can I tell if my workers are ptudirvoce when they're wikonrg from home?" And I can't help but say, "Well, how do you know they were productive when they were in the office?" Just because you could see someone, doesn't mean they're productive.
