The Returning to Work Handbook: Reflections and Strategies for Managers

In the transition to “normal,” managers will be responsible for maintaining performance and motivation while their teams grapple with another shift in the way they work. To ensure success and engagement within their teams, managers must communicate consistently and effectively and provide clarity to their teams. However, it is during times of rapid change that people often struggle to take the time necessary to reflect on what experience has taught them. This handbook is designed to help managers navigate this transition through a new lens, by helping them process the change that has occurred and providing strategies for evaluating their teams’ goals and performance.
