 drawing inspiration here from your quotes in this recent article, hoping to elicit some more helpful feedback from Pulse's community. https://www.cio.com/article/3544612/remote-work-tests-cios-soft-skills-amid-coronavirus-crisis.html

I enjoyed your contributions to RSAC wrt supporting cultural alignment within your organization in this difficult environment. Hoping that we can encourage some additional ideas on this thread...

Taking time to send personal emails to people across the different departments of your organization... thanking for their service relative to your IT department is a great practice... means a lot to hear from leaders across the org!

I keep engaged with the team via MS Teams

Try to stay away from over optimizing performance, once you give your employees some space they will grow comfortable in this new position and actually tend to become more productive on their own. We also tend to organize some gaming tournaments and announcements in our Slack when someone pushes to GitHub with failing CI (kind of like a swear jar penalty) and it's really fun. Once we go back to the office I am thinking of implementing an actual toy that shoots you in the face with a soft bullet if you push with failing CI

We have done more one on one and live coding.

I use Gamification to keep them engaged. We have a lot of job, with specific deadlines, so in order the team to be highly motivated the Gamification mechanics help us with all the stuff we have to deliver & maintain our mental sanity as well.

Trying gamification of our sprints. Giving the team the ability to name their team and points for best planned sprint or best demo
