Leading from Anywhere with Dr. David Burkus - Part 1

Episode 19

Welcome back to the Mission First People Always Podcast! In today's episode, I'm offering my conversation with author, Dr. David Burkus, in two parts because it is so good I didn't want to try to stuff it all in one episode. In fact, I believe everything we talk about has practical implications for nearly every manager, so make sure to come back next week for part two of this conversation. David is considered one of the top business thought-leaders in the world by Thinkers50, is a sought after keynote speaker with a Ted Talk that's been viewed over 2 million times, and is an active consultant who has a track record with some of the world's top organizations. He's the author of several highly acclaimed books, and today, we dig into this latest book, Leading from Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Managing Remote Teams. In the book, David makes a persuasive case for remote teams being as effective–or even more effective–than traditional teams that mostly operate together, face-to-face, on a daily basis. However, getting the most out of these remote teams requires a certain leadership approach which fortunately can be learned. Join the conversation on how to bring out the best in people from afar. Listen in as we discuss how to get started right with a remote team, how to find and leverage a common purpose for the team, how to engage your people, onboard new team members, how to let people go on Zoom, and much more. We even talk about Elon Musk's recent declaration that everyone has to come back to the office. Every point has a practical application, so you'll find the entire conversation both relevant and immediately useful. For more resources or connect with us, check out the links below!
