Favorite LOTH Memory
Favorite LOTH Memory

In this “Hybrid” world be present as much as possible. Some of the best opportunities to be mentored by senior leaders and to mentor those who work for you don’t come over Teams or Zoom. They occur in conference rooms before or after meetings; they occur at the water cooler or coffee maker; they occur in the hallway; and they occur when people connect for a few minutes in person over a topic that they wouldn’t schedule a call for.
