Digital disruption began well before we were all forced to practice social distancing, but recently it has advanced into sections of society that were previously slow to adopt.

Here are a few potential traps and ways to overcome them as leaders begin rising to the challenge: COVID changed the landscape of many aspects of our lives. The world will no longer operate like it did prior to the arrival of this virus.
