Remote work isn’t new. Technology has allowed organizations to have offices not only on different coasts but in different countries. We have started to work across time zones and cultures. In 2018, Kevin Eikenberry and Wayne Turmel published the Long-Distance Leader and reminded leaders the principles didn’t change, just the location. In March of 2019, there was a huge shift to remote work; much of it unplanned. They found there was a difference between working from home and being a productive remote teammate. Wayne, co-founder of the Remote Leadership Institute, joins Kevin to discuss their latest book, The Long-Distance Teammate: Stay Engaged and Connected While Working Anywhere. There is a difference between being just a team member and a teammate. We need to be more intentional to create connections and take responsibility for our growth. Wayne shares ideas for leaders and discusses some of the challenges we may see in 2021. We are not going back to the way things were.
In this episode, Wayne discusses:
- The leaders’ role with a remote team.
- Remote productivity.
- Challenges in 2021.
