“Don’t abandon culture. I think it’s really easy to think about how tools and the pandemic have forced us into this sense that, ‘hey, we can do things,’ but the ability to do things and wanting to do things are totally different things. If you don’t nurture the culture, especially for new colleagues coming into your firm, they won’t get the benefit of that connective tissue that ties everybody together… And they’re going to find people who figured out how to transfer the soul of their company into a virtual world.”
