If you expect that you'll continue to lead teams distributed among multiple sites and home offices, these resolutions for remote and hybrid leaders are for you.
I'm a true advocate for face-to-face interactions with colleagues, and while I'm impressed with how well we've all adapted to virtual collaboration, I believe we risk eroding connection and relationships if we don't actively adopt practices to mitigate for the loss of in-person time together. As a leader and executive, I've also learned that my digital behaviors carry extra weight with my team, and it takes conscious effort to avoid missteps and miscommunication.
For IT admins, using GPOs to manage corporate devices and user configurations can be a challenge. GPOs provide a well-defined configuration for Windows systems and user-definable ADMX templates from third-party vendors for a variety of settings. Still, IT admins can run into challenges when applying GPO policy in various scenarios.
First, the group policies are Active Directory-based so they can only apply to machines that are added in and connected to AD. The policies cannot be applied easily to non-AD joined devices. With BYOD becoming more common in enterprise IT, figuring out how to manage and configure those machines can be a challenge.
Second, although the GPO definitions (templates) are fully customizable, internal needs sometimes require additional configuration of software that isn't fully defined in those GPOs. Consider the provisioning guide for Citrix Workspace app. Even though there are fully defined options in the GPO templates, registry-based configurations are sometimes still required.
