For many teams, email is the primary form of staying connected, making it critically important but also a major point of stress.

Ah, Millennials. This generation may be the most broadly stereotyped, yet often misunderstood.

I typically follow the 80-20 rule when considering the challenges that managers face. About 80% of a a manager’s role and the challenges they encounter are the same regardless of the setting.
