What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book started out as a passion project, training team leaders in my organization to become more effective with their teams in a virtual environment. After receiving an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on the training, I knew I had to turn it into a book to help others learn from my experiences. The trend towards remote work is not slowing down, and if anything, the pandemic accelerated the widespread adoption of remote work.
When the coronavirus pandemic sent everyone home to telework in March 2020, I was a Supply Chain Logistics Manager leading a team of nine cross-functional team members. Although some of my team members took advantage of teleworking one or two days per week, the leap to full-time telework was a shock to us all. My military leadership training kicked-in and I embraced my digital comfort as a millennial to take full advantage of remote work tools. I rapidly transitioned all of my team’s regular activities to a virtual format, and we quickly pivoted to the telework environment. We led the way and established the ‘new normal’ within our organization to operate digitally and continue our mission.
Just four months into the pandemic, I transferred to a new organization as a Program Manager. This transition happened nearly all virtual. The only time I went into the office was to meet my new supervisor and collect my assigned computer. As I navigated the transition to work with a large team of people I had never met before, I took note of my feelings in the transition along with observations about which practices seemed to work and which ones didn’t.
What I didn’t realize at the time of this transition was how many other teams struggled to transition their collaboration activities, keep the lines of communication open, and reinvent themselves remotely. Talking with others, I learned just how much most people struggle to transition to new teams and/or bring new hires onto their team while teleworking—especially the ‘more seasoned’ generations who are less comfortable in the digital environment. The commonly heard refrain was, “Things will get better once we get back into the office”.
Now over a year into the pandemic and working remotely, it is clear that things will never really go back to the way they were. Many employees will work remotely at least part of the time and getting the entire team together in the office may be rare in the future. Now we know how well we can work remotely. Pandora’s box has been opened.
This book will take you on a journey beyond average office leadership and into the high-performing realm of remote leadership. We will discuss why leading remotely matters in the context of current events and why we are unlikely to go back to the way things were. I’ll cover the advantages to both employees and the employer. Then, we will talk about trust as a critical piece to remote leadership and how to build a strong foundation of trust and connection on your remote team. I will deliver tactics you can execute to bring your team together and make progress on the outputs that matter most to your organization. Lastly, we will cover tips for clear and effective communication in the digital environment before wrapping it all together with my vision for the future of remote work.
My goal for this book is two-fold. First, I hope this book gives tactical and mid-level leaders tools to improve their digital leadership skills and lead their teams to thrive in a remote work environment. Second, my wish is for organizational leaders at all levels to adopt the opportunity and advantages remote work offers. Together, we can embrace the future of remote work culture.
