your teams for what's next

Watch this episode of the Stratford Roundtable to learn:

1) How leaders’ mindsets evolve to keep up with the pace of change around us

Adopting a New Mindset.

The world of remote work isn’t all fun and games and hilarious Zoom backgrounds.

Behind the fun, employee wellbeing is suffering. Experts anticipate a substantial increase in the prevalence of mental health concerns as a result of the pandemic, and employers can’t sit back and hope their employees aren’t affected or that they will be able to manage everything on their own. 

To adapt to the pace of change that lies ahead, employers and employees alike need to adopt a new mindset: make plans with the assumption that those plans will change. 

Meet your hosts.
