Microsoft Teams has been a blessing in disguise for the CDA’s and especially myself who started to manage the team the day we were told to work from home!
We have had more interactions with one another on a daily basis than we ever would have had in a non-COVID 19 environment. The regular interaction has been so great for morale, from sharing information to sparking ideas.
The team I manage is a national one and so by nature, the CDA’s would not ordinarily pick up the phone and talk to their colleagues interstate but rather utilise their State Sales team as they are familiar with them.
However, even though our State’s physical borders are closed, our virtual borders are well and truly open and it makes for wonderful dialogues between buddies.
Birthdays have been hard to celebrate with loved ones due to restrictions, but they do not go unnoticed by our work family.
