Since millions of workers have shifted to remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, managers are currently faced with full time remote work themselves as well as the task of supervising remote employees who may never have worked remotely before.  Managers can be “caught in the middle” – working to meet the expectations of their bosses while managing the performance and concerns of their teams.  The two of us have conducted research on remote work (Tammy) and coached leaders during the pandemic (Mark).
