b. Communication is the basis of everything
Remember to keep communication active with your team and even those people you only exchanged "good morning" with in the corridor. Communicate through messages, calls and video calls. You are still part of the team.
c. Empathise with your team

people have different realities from one another. Put yourself in the other person's shoes and try to help as much as possible.
a moment of collaboration.

Establish a method of organisation and communicate this to your team.
- Task Management:
