"And that's what the survey told us... People are missing that sense of community, people are missing flexibility, people are missing warmth and acknowledgment... That was really it!
Ask people, 'what do they need?' And then deliver what they need.
And it's really about being in tune and listening and learning and then delivering on what those things are gonna look like for the people."
