    What Makes A Great Remote Worker?

    What Makes A Great Remote Worker?

    In addition to the normal methods we use to screen job candidates, and the tactics we use to judge whether those candidates are a fit for the organization, those same leaders have found that hiring remote workers and setting them up for success, requires candidates are evaluated for more than just their knowledge, skills, abilities, and past experience.

    In this episode, we’ll review the three biggest questions that leaders need to answer when evaluating potential new hires. 

    Are they collaborators?
    Are they communicators?
    Are they self-motivated?

    Beyond just “Can they do the job?” these questions answer the even bigger question of “Can they do the job remotely?”

    How To Do Remote Team Building

    How To Do Remote Team Building

    In this episode, we'll cover how to do remote team building. Most of what teams (especially remote teams) actually need to build better collaboration and team identity has less to do with a singular event and more to do with ongoing activities, habits, and rituals that the team engages in regularly. Here are five proven activities that, done regularly, will build your team better than ropes courses or trust falls:

    Office Tours
    Scavenger Hunts
    Fika
    Work Sprints
    Shared Meals

    If you just start with one of these activities—or even use these as a foundation for an activity unique to your team—then you’ll find that you and the team are more deliberate about getting better connected, and that connection will make the whole team better.

    How To Build Culture On A Remote Team

    How To Build Culture On A Remote Team

    In this episode, we’re going to review the two key elements of team culture that were uncovered in that experiment: shared understanding and shared identity. Plus, as a bonus, we’ll review one thing we know from more and more research that makes for a great team culture in any situation: psychological safety.

    We've known for over a decade that individual performance is hugely dependent upon the team that individuals are placed on. Top performance by individuals hinges on whether or not their teammates, their manager, and the organization they are a part of gives them the support, and the resources they need to do their best work. And the best remote teams have a culture marked by shared understanding, shared identity, and psychological safety.

    How Teams Should Make Decisions

    How Teams Should Make Decisions

    In this episode, we’ll review four stages you should take your team through to make sure that you get more of the brilliance that happens from having multiple brains on the problem. And less of the internal politics, self-censoring, and squelching of ideas that makes for poor team decisions. 

    Find The Real Problem
    Analyze The Data
    Generation Possible Solutions
    Select For Commitment, Not Consensus

    If you go through this process and if you make sure that everyone feels their ideas are heard and everyone feels energetic behind the idea chosen even where they disagree, you'll be better going through that iterative process. Because you'll be better off to make the next decision. And overall, your team will begin to make some of the best decisions that's ever made and have some of the biggest wins they've ever had.

    Is Remote Work The New Normal?

    Is Remote Work The New Normal?

    Remote Work is indeed the new normal. Not because we're headed for a future where everyone is working from home. But because the extended time spent working away from the office has led to many of rearranging the way we work into something better than before. The future of work is working from anywhere. And the future of leading teams, is leading from anywhere.
