Thinking Remote

A book for managers leading remote teams and for employees who want to make a difference. A concise volume to add to your collection of leadership books.

As more companies adopt remote, flexible or office optional practices, managers and team leaders realise that the transition to a new way of working involves more than making sure that everyone has the right equipment to be able to work from home. It requires a change in mindset and approach.

In this collection of articles gathered together from the Virtual not Distant blog, Pilar Orti and Maya Middlemiss reflect on this transition from a change-management perspective, drawn from their experience of working with leaders of distributed teams.

Each article has been selected to cover one area of remote leadership practice, and is followed by a set of leadership reflections to help you identify your next steps. Considering challenges from wellbeing to technology to communication, this series of articles will empower leaders at all levels to improve their personal practice and their team's performance.

    It’s important to nip in the bud any demonstrated tendencies to replicate ‘presenteeism’ games in the online office. Replacing the ‘jacket on the back of the chair’ with a habit of checking out shared documents ridiculously early in the morning, or replying to emails and instant messages late at night, shouldn’t impress anyone. From a supervisory point of view, all it points to is poor time management skills in need of remedy.

    I can recall consulting in a client service-based office once, where it emerged that all timesheets were hurriedly reconstructed most Friday afternoons, when HR sent the reminder email out – and constituted little more than creative guesswork in most cases as a result.
    So, that wasn’t working.
