#SaaSChats Recap: Project Management meets Crisis Management

Anyone else dealing with pandemic fatigue? Yea – we are with you on that one.

So how do you keep productivity (and morale) levels high, manage stress, deal with constant change in local COVID regulations, and cope with ongoing worry for the world? (Let’s throw lack of sleep in there just for fun, shall we?)

Managing your team, and yourself, has never been so difficult – and it’s never been so important to have the right approach. Or at least be willing to adapt as you go in order to find the best approach! Willingness to learn and the ability to embrace change is key in dealing with these curve balls coming at us from all angles (thanks, 2020!).

This month, we asked a panel of experts all about their experience through the last 8 months of this pandemic. We asked them all the tough + self reflective questions so that you can sit back and soak up their wisdom!

We also had a little secret up our sleeve for this one! Inspired by our pal Riaz Sidi over at Sidi.io, we launched: #SaaSChats Tunes – the official soundtrack of our monthly chats! Throw it on while you check out the recap! Also, we promise to keep adding more fun tunes so it never gets old. Bookmark the playlist today, thank us tomorrow!
