The pandemic has challenged everyone, including businesses, to explore possibilities to operate. It has opened our eyes that work can be done outside of the office, and the same goes with leading a team. Specifically, it has shown us that to be able to become an effective leader, one must combine virtual coordination and in-person collaboration. This means going beyond traditional team leadership and operating in virtual coordination mode and face-to-face collaboration mode.

On the other hand, the face-to-face collaboration mode entails fostering deep learning, innovation, acculturation, and dedication.
