Remote Leadership: How to Accelerate Achievement and Create a Community in a Work-from-Home World
After three years of explosive growth and on the verge of profitable, March 2020 found JumpCrew in the same position as every other company around the world. Virtually overnight, offices across the country woke up to a new world of Zoom meetings and virtual happy hours. Leaders who relied on their presence to motivate and inspire became powerless, and employees who benefited from accidental coaching or the sense of community unique to the traditional workplace became isolated.
How would a company whose success was so closely tied to its office camaraderie and culture of accountability, collaboration, and face-to-face interaction not only survive but thrive in this new world?
Remote Leadership: How to Accelerate Achievement and Create a Community in a Work-from-Home World is the story of this defining moment: the realization that the only way forward was to carry in-person culture into this new virtual world and embrace a geographically diverse workforce. It’s also an in-depth look at what it means to be a leader at a time when this conventional role is being challenged, and how to transform an organization into a stronger and more impactful community.
Remote Leadership is a powerful reminder that learning and growth only come when you step out of your comfort zone, and that to lead you must also be willing to look within.
