    [Replay] Trust is essential in remote companies with Gonçalo Silva

    [Replay] Trust is essential in remote companies with Gonçalo Silva

    When a podcast guest says “This isn’t a fairytale”, I buckle up because I know we’re in for an interesting and useful conversation.

    In today’s People at Work episode, Gonçalo Silva, CTO at Doist, tells the story of this fully remote company’s growth and culture journey over the past decade.

    Even though Doist is doing a lot right, there are still obstacles in their way and a team to take care of from afar. Oh, and did I mention they’ve also had to adapt to cope during the pandemic? Granted, they’ve had a head start with the remote work gig, but the struggle has been real for them too.

    The hero in the story is trust. Everything they do, how they work, how they make decisions, centers on trust. The success of their asynchronous, remote, fully distributed team depends on this.

    This interview is real and refreshing, with many insights that can help those of us adapting our workforces to fully remote or hybrid arrangements. Give it a listen and let me know how you enjoyed the ride.

    About our guest:

    Gonçalo is the CTO of Doist, working remotely on Todoist and Twist. He’s obsessed with building the future he wants to work in, where location is irrelevant to being part of a highly productive team. He loves to work odd hours, but wonders if there’s even such a thing within a fully distributed team.

    The great re-evaluation: how to retain your best people [Recap]

    The great re-evaluation: how to retain your best people [Recap]

    Employee departures are disruptive in any company. Whenever an employee resigns, they leave a gaping hole in a team. And they take their institutional knowledge, contribution to culture, and other skills with them.


    Since the pandemic, talent is flocking in droves for various reasons. The great resignation has leaders, CEOs, and managers asking: what can we do about it and what does it teach us about the working world? From prioritizing communication in the workplace to ensuring employee and company value alignment, our guests go in-depth about why employees are leaving and share insights on how to retain your best people.


    In today's episode, we look back on the insight from our expert guests, including:
    - Yair Riemer, the CEO of Intoo
    - Molly Bruttomesso, the Senior VP of Customer Success at Wunderkind
    - Joe Mullings, the Chairman & CEO of The Mullings Group Companies

    [Replay] Changing perspective to be happier at work with Aoife O’Brien

    [Replay] Changing perspective to be happier at work with Aoife O’Brien

    If the pandemic has afforded us anything, it’s a fresh perspective on a major part of our lives: work. Where we do it, how it’s measured, what we’re prepared to put up with, and how we expect bosses to behave (I could go on).

    Happiness at work expert Aoife O’Brien advocates for a fresh perspective on work itself, and where it fits in our lives. With her research and personal work experiences, she believes we shouldn’t embrace work and life, work-life balance, or any other way to stitch those two parts together.

    Instead, let’s simply think about life, and all the parts and contributors in that experience. This helps us make smarter decisions about what we want from our lives, what success means to us, and how we choose to spend our time.

    Listen in on how Aoife suggests we can achieve happiness when we adopt this mindset. We also talk about how organizations can make a shift to whole person support structures, and the role that individuals play in their own happiness, wherever they find themselves.

    Avoiding the great resignation with Yair Riemer

    Avoiding the great resignation with Yair Riemer

    Don’t worry, this isn’t another blog post bemoaning the reality of the great resignation. It’s very well understood that we’re facing more turnover thanks to the pandemic. Now it’s time to talk about how we can avoid a revolving door of talent.

    Yair Reimer believes the strongest strategy to keep people engaged and active in your organization is to communicate. And realize that over-communication is impossible. For Yair, communication includes clearly sharing company updates, asking for feedback, listening, encouraging everyone to speak up, and training leaders and managers to ask hard questions.

    In this episode of People at Work, Yair shares what he’s putting into practice at Intoo, to create a workplace culture where people want to stay and contribute. Beyond communication, it’s about finding joy in the day-to-day and treating everyone like equal, whole human beings.


    About our guest:

    As a CEO of Intoo, Yair helps global companies increase retention by developing the potential of their people, transforming performance, and transitioning skills. Yair once attracted over 75k applicants with 1 job advert in less than a week.

    Quality leadership with Sean Patton

    Quality leadership with Sean Patton

    Learning about leadership on the front lines of armed conflict is an extreme way to get clear on what matters when leading people. As a former US Army Special Forces Commander, Sean Patton understands what it means to be a quality leader, because his life (and those around him) depended on it.

    Being a quality leader means taking a whole person approach. In the average workplace on any given day, it may not feel mission critical to be a quality leader. But, Sean believes we need to think about quality leadership as the determining factor in a business thriving or failing.

    In this episode of People at Work, Sean talks about how he’s adapted his military experience into the corporate world. He outlines what he believes quality leaders need to embody, and why each of us needs to be a quality leader in every aspect of our lives, all the time.



    About our guest:

    Sean helps clients create more fulfilling and profitable futures through mindset mastery and servant leadership development. He’s a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and 2019 Masters World Champion!

    You can connect with Sean on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn
