People are social beings. Project managers are responsible for the social interactions of those they lead. In fact, their role may better be described as “People” Managers instead of “Project” Managers. If the people are managed, the project gets done. With the pandemic, the challenge to manage people is even harder. But social distancing is NOT the way to do it.


  • the social nature of people
  • the risks of social distancing
  • social needs during these trying times
  • specific action steps to address these social needs
