Recommend this article from Mike Yaghmai of Facebook Legal for all those managing a team of lawyers (completely) remotely. His experience certainly resonates with me, especially the need to tailor virtual social interactions to the individual.
The challenge of course is that this is easier to do in person. We all flex (or at least should flex) our styles, but the reality is that the WFH world requires more formality or structure; we do not just bump into someone anymore, or fortuitously grab a bite to eat or a coffee at the same time.
We need to consciously make the time to engage outside of the specific item of work. The challenge I personally find is that this does take more time. In a C-19 world, I seem to need to manage more, lawyer less.
Some team members needed the regular interaction with others and for them, having regular meetings and virtual happy hours was great. Others needed any time they could find to unwind or to deal with family matters. The right thing to do was to embrace those who needed the interaction by creating team outlets and ways to interact while, at the same time, being explicit that participation was entirely optional so that others did not feel additional strain by having to come along for the ride! Over time, we found that these two camps can coexist nicely.
