    The History of Work and Its Influence on The Future of Work w/ Adam Nathan @Almanac

    The History of Work and Its Influence on The Future of Work w/ Adam Nathan @Almanac

    Here's the recap...Well, we've likely arrived at the close of Leading from Afar. Over the past 4 seasons, we've spoken with outstanding leaders about what and how the future of work will look like. In today's episode, I talked to Adam Nathan, the CEO of Almanac about the history of work. From the industrial revolution up through the CoVid remote revolution and beyond. We dove into what defined each period or version of work. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The similarities and differences in the following period/version of work. And what influences we'll see in the future of work. Things like how to measure productivity, employee engagement, mission-driven work, and so much more. Unlike previous episodes where each was topic focused with takeaways, this is more a thinking-out-loud conversation.

    Intentionally Teaching Remote Leaders To Be Intentional w/ Alex Spahn @Gomada

    Here's the recap...In today's episode, I spoke with Alex Spahn one of the co-founders of one of my favorite under-the-radar tools, Gomada. Today's conversation was all about team engagement and the need for remote leaders to have intentionality in doing so. We dove into the topics focusing both on Alex as a leader of a remote company and also as someone building a product, especially for this. This still remains one of the biggest needs for remote managers. Up-skilling on how and why intentionality is so crucial.

    How to Up-skill Remote Managers w/ Peter Benei

    Here's the recap...In today's episode, I chatted with my good friend Peter Benei about how to up-skill remote leadership. Peter has been helping numerous remote organizations train their managers and enable them to build a learning culture. Companies just took what they were doing in the office and did it remotely when the lockdown came. 3 years later few companies have invested in learning to do it right. In this episode, we dive into the pros and cons of remote learning, what specific skills remote managers need to focus on, how to make remote L&D more collaborative, and much more.

    Remote Tools Will Solve the #1 Question of Hybrid Work. Who to ☕ with w/ Franco Castaldini @Hifive

    Here's the recap...In today's episode, I sat down with Franco Castaldini the GM of HiFive. A product incubated within Siemens (yes the global conglomerate) to solve their own issues around employee engagement and what the future of the office looks like. They built a product to help teams not only know who will be in the office and when to better organize office visits. But to automatically foster connections and coffee meetings between those who are in the office that day. We chatted about what office utilization has looked like, why people do or don't want to come into an office, what companies need to think about regarding redesigning their office space, and much more.

    The success or failure of IRLs depends on intentionality w/ Liz Leary @Atlassian

    Here's the recap...Today's class should turn into an online course as it's an absolute masterpiece. Liz Leary who has been planning and running IRLs for Trello & Atlassian for years drops so much knowledge it could barely be contained in 1 episode. We covered everything you need to know whether you're thinking about or currently planning on getting the team together. How often, where to get together, what to do when there, and the small details easily forgotten. Like what about those parents left behind by your employee with the kids? Paying for takeout and babysitting can make or break someone coming and having a great time.

    How to Design the Perfect IRL w/ Peter Fabor @ Surf Office

    Here's the recap. This is the second episode of three about the topic of IRLs. In today's show, I sat down with my buddy Peter Fabor, CEO of Surf Office. We did a deep dive into how to create a memorable IRL. And how he's used his own company offering to create his team's experiences. We spoke about choosing a location, what are companies doing at gatherings, how often the team should get together, why small details like dietary restrictions can make or break the experience, and more. Another invaluable conversation backed by the experience of his team planning and organizing countless IRLs for other companies, as well as, their own.
