Working in distributes teams has become the new normal during the Coronavirus and will likely be the way we work going forward.
Today I talk to John O'Duinn. He is the author of "Distributed Teams: The Art and Practice of Working Together While Physically Apart.
John loves growing a culture where diverse groups of humans work well together in a distributed global workforce. He has worked in distributed teams for 27 years, led distributed teams for 14 years and coached/mentored fast-growing distributed companies for 6 years. So far, he has lived and worked in 13 cities across four continents.
As this way of working has become more mainstream, and even more now during the Coronovirus, he noticed a lack of practical material in this area, so in 2018, he published his book "Distributed Teams: The Art and Practice of Working Together While Physically Apart". This practical easy-to-read management book deals with immediate tactical issues, more complex human dynamics as well as wider social, diversity and environmental aspects. In 2018, he also helped write the State of Vermont's "Remote Worker" law - a very different approach to Economic Development which has been so wildly successful that I'm now helping draft bills and write policies for multiple other jurisdictions world-wide.
