Let's kick this virus out of our communities
(and our companies)!
As COVID-19's spread forces more and more companies to have employees work from home, I am seeing a lot of my CEO friends scramble to figure out remote-work best practices that can help their companies make the shift chaos-free. Even and especially for a limited amount of time.
It may seem simple on the surface with tools available like Zoom, Drive, Slack, but for fast-paced companies who are used to having everyone in the same office, rapidly changing to a remote-by-default protocol can be chaotic and full of misunderstandings, stalled projects, and expensive mistakes.
For the last 7 years my work has centered around helping organizations build remote teams and culture. As one of my family's ways of engaging around the current public health crisis, I am making my workshops available at a 50% discount to companies who are looking to go remote.

A little bit of Background:
Since 2013 I've played:
... the CEO Role,
... the Internal Head of Culture role,
... and the External Advisor role...
for 15 organizations including:
... seed-and-series-A startups,
... venture capital funds,
... mid-sized nonprofits,
... and governments.
In each setting, my company and I have led transformations to help organizations successfully
(and sometimes unsuccessfully!) go remote.
My systems center around:
Going remote requires a change in communication habits, but it's more doable than we think. Simple practices like overcommunicating around seemingly obvious topics, thoughtful and constructive messaging tactics, and contextualized check-ins can make all the difference.
When you go remote, it becomes harder to spin your chair around and tap someone on the shoulder. But it is possible to replicate similar accessibility dynamics and in fact set up clearer systems for collaboration than you had before.
Remote work is not just a way of letting your employees work from home; it's a means of empowering them to lead their lives in a way that enables them to perform their best work and show up with their best selves. Still, the absence of team lunches or water-cooler check-ins can be jarring for some, so it' s important to implement fun virtual alternatives that allow team members to feel connected rather than isolated.
Going remote can be an opportunity to cut costs, but it can be hard to understand where to invest and what's truly necessary. No amount of premium subscriptions to fancy software tools can replace strong communication fundamentals and inspired leadership.
