Async Leadership is the Future of All Work w/ Liam Martin @ Running Remote
Here's the recap...In today's episode, I sat down with one of the foremost experts in async communication, Liam Martin. Liam is a fellow remote OG and writing the book about async (stay tuned)! This episode continued the series on how individual leaders working at remote companies not embracing the best practices of the future of work can do so within their individual teams. So today's focus was on how leaders can implement async leadership & communication with their direct reports. We talked a lot about writing, data, and the need for radical transparency.   If you're a team leader or company leader thinking async makes a whole of sense and want to move away from pointless Zoom calls this episode is for you.   For a full transcript click here.   For more awesome content about async communication check out the async playlist.   We'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts about the show - feedback@leadingfromafar.com

Is being in a real conference room w/ a whiteboard better for collaboration? w/ Jo Widawski CEO @ Maze
Here's the recap...In this episode, I spoke with Dror Poleg. A futurist about work, offices, crypto, and more. We broke down a couple of points from a recent post of his about a Crypto Future of Work. First off, how companies and the idea of a team may get replaced by DAOs. Meaning team members get compensated based on contribution. Second, how the concept of a unified team with solving a joint mission may change. Perhaps with a core team where contributors swap in & out regularly to solve specific tasks or challenges. We're already starting to see the first changes in this direction.

Trust in remote teams is a 2-way street w/ Tom Willmot, CEO @ Human Made
Here's the recap...In today's episode, I chatted with Tom Willmot, CEO & Co-founder @Human Made.  I came across Human Made's publicly available employee handbook a number of weeks back. It was pretty awesome (you can find it below). Its effort was to ensure all important and relevant employee information was centralized and available to everyone. Including folks outside of Human Made. The last. year plus there's been a major push in the build-in public idea. At the same time, young startups I putting a deeper focus on building world-class cultures and creating public-facing documents for everyone's value. This episode was all about how can company leaders develop more and deeper trust in their teams. Especially when they don't see them 'working.' We dive into specific ways and changes every leader can make today to improve. We also spoke about how that trust is a two-way street. As a leader, you want to build that trust but that can only be done if your team trusts you as much. This is where transparency comes to play in examples like their employee handbook. Providing deep insights into the health, vision, and workings of the company provides confidence in your team that they're always in the loop. Better helping them understand the impact they can make with their work. If you're a leader who went remote during the pandemic and was (and still is) struggling with trust and transparency within your organization, this episode is for you...
