How can companies and their employees successfully transition to remote working conditions in the time of COVID-19?
Leadership coach Anja van Beek helps us navigate these uncertain times and suggests ways to be productive if you are working from home.

What happens if you do not have the most conducive home environment to work from?
Beek says business leaders need to be empathetic and understand the reality of employees.
