ISG Digital Dish Episode 13: Leaning In and Leading Remotely

The pandemic not only accelerated the trend to remote work but forever changed the way we think about working remotely. With more employees than ever before now regularly working from home, employers and business leaders are having to adapt their management styles to ensure they stay engaged with their teams, wherever they are based. How can managers successfully lead their teams into the post-pandemic future? And how can they overcome some of the challenges arising from the new hybrid work environment?  

Our guest on this episode of the Digital Dish is Taruna Rai, Senior Director Information Technology at Relativity. She talks to host Jeanne Cuff about her experience of managing and transitioning a large, international team through a remote working environment during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Through their discussion, we learn how a balanced and flexible approach enabled Rai to create a positive work environment, promote innovation and empower her team to thrive.
