In our daily professional life, we are called upon to take up all kinds of challenges. Sticking to what we are asked to do without questioning the way we do our work is possible. But we know it’s not the right thing to do! Research shows that being proactive is a key leadership skill. And in an ever-changing environment or in remote work contexts, this skill becomes even more essential. Indeed, it can be easier to slip into isolation and inaction when we are working at a distance. It is therefore important to seize opportunities and be proactive in order to remain part of a motivated team and to maintain healthy relationships.
