In today’s fast-paced and evolving business landscape, managers face unprecedented challenges and are in no doubt feeling ‘the squeeze’. Squeezed managers find themselves caught between the expectations of their leaders to achieve more with limited resources in a challenging economy, and the needs of their team members for flexibility, empathy, and wellbeing.
Navigating this complex environment can be overwhelming, especially with the added complexities of remote and hybrid work.
