A lot of people handling managerial roles are wondering about how to keep their teams busy and optimistic during these times! In that order, Howard Wilner of Sudbury has suggested some ways in which you can do so while empowering your employees:

- Offer training opportunities to help your team and your company in the long-term-whether that's getting a new certification or reading relevant industry books.

- Consider making vacation policies or work hours more flexible to accommodate employees whose kids may be out of school, for example.

- Share jobs across departments to increase responsiveness to your customers.

- Involve your team in projects or things you've put off because you were too busy before.

For those who have teams working remotely, Howard Wilner of Sudbury suggests making sure you check in with them often. A virtual daily coffee or 15-minute meeting to see how everyone is doing can be vital to your team's mental health and well-being, Howard suggests.
