Help Your Remote Team Thrive Next Week
If you are new to leading a remote team, (or company!), then this may be the best insider resource you will find. Actually, even the most experienced remote leader will learn a new trick or two.
After all, the next two weeks are going to be critical. If you can’t your teams focused, thriving, and happy, you will have real problems.
“We have won awards like #3 on Glassdoor and #2 on Fortune’s Best in Tech Bay Area lists, despite almost half of our team working from home and the rest spread out across five global offices, and with me being a remote, work-from-home CEO living in Sedona, AZ.”
15Five Founder/CEO David Hassell has been a dear friend of mine for about a decade. As has his co-founder and Chief Culture Officer, Shane Metcalf. Together they have created one of the most successful distributed teams and cultures in the world.
David and Shane spent a lot of time last week organizing their best practices into a detailed how-to guide that I want to share with you.
David sent me this email.
I just published a comprehensive guide for CEOs and leaders on how to prepare for an extended period of remote work.
It’s basically everything I know about building an extraordinary distributed team and culture (that’s both high performing AND socially connected) which I’ve done over the past 9 years in building 15Five.
We’ve won awards like #3 on Glassdoor and #2 on Fortune’s Best in Tech Bay Area lists, despite almost half of our team working from home and the rest spread out across five global offices, and with me being a remote, work-from-home CEO living in Sedona, AZ.
Thankfully we didn’t miss a beat with this move to shelter-in-place, and I’m hopeful I can help other leaders quickly adapt.
Jamie Wheal of the Flow Genome Project and author of Stealing Fire shared about it,
“Amazing piece David — one of the most thoroughly useful, practical and credible guides to the whole remote org building I’ve ever come across. Engaging, humble, optimistic, evidence-based, and illustrated with your own examples of walking this talk. While everyone and their mother rushes into offering new products/posts about remote work, you guys have been at it all along, and the depth of expertise and commitment blazes through. Glad to know you and Shane, and I am sharing this with friends and clients. — Jamie”
