Wayne Turmel joins Tamara Sanderson and Ali Greene, authors of the book Remote Works: Managing for Freedom, Flexibility and Focus, to discuss their passion for remote work and the importance of intentionality in successfully transitioning to remote work. They stress the need for companies to have non-negotiables in place, including trust-building, autonomy, and rethinking traditional management techniques. They also emphasize the need for leaders to embrace the liberation and benefits of remote work and let go of outdated practices. Ultimately, remote work must be designed to fit a company's values and decisions must be made with intentionality in order to maintain sustainability and attract talent.
Remote work is not just about the surface level of technology tools like Zoom, but it requires rethinking every aspect of work to truly unlock its benefits.
