The most common phrase that has been uttered since we all started working remotely.
And guess what, to many the answer is still no.
Because we weren’t listening before, because we weren’t taking in what people were saying and because all we wanted to hear is what was playing in our head.

And if they aren’t going to listen, then find someone who will and make them your champion.
(And listen to them too).
