The Gist of What You Hear If You Listen Closely

"I can't wait to get back to the office. I miss the people, the interactions - at least most of them - and the whole experience of being on the job."

"I love working from home. No interruptions, no commute, no drama. I am more productive and I am not distracted by co-workers and petty gossip."

"A blend of both would be nice."

"I want my team here. No matter how many Zoom meetings and emails, I sense that I am missing something. Think of how often an off-hand remark becomes intensely revealing. Don't have that anymore or at least not as much of it."

"If you're not here, how competitive are you going to be if a promotion opening occurs?"

"Some people love the break from the office. But many of those in the office love the break from home."

"This is like a laboratory test in self-discipline. And you know what we are."
