 Keep communication tools simple instead of overloading people with too many ways to share information. And set a cadence for team and oneon-one communications so people feel involved, receive regular project updates, and have a chance to be heard. 

Focus on results

 Set expectations for output and reinforce them often. Focus on results, not how, when, where they do it. This maintains accountability while entrusting people to get things done on their own terms, which is especially important during these uncertain times.
