The *real* future of work with Diana Wu David

Leadership has been truly tested during the pandemic. From pulling people together to tearing them apart, the pandemic has shown us the best (and worst) from leaders imaginable. What lessons can be learned and taken forward? What behaviours should we lose? Are we destined to live in a remote surveillance workplace? How is trust in the workplace? All these questions, and more, will be explored on this episode of Mouthwash.
