Leading from Anywhere with Dr. David Burkus - Part 2

Episode 20

Welcome back to the Mission First, People Always Podcast! We are back again with Dr. David Burkus for part two of our conversation about remote teams and remote leadership. Before you hit play, be sure to catch last week's episode for part one so you are caught up to speed. If you are a leader who has found yourself "working from anywhere," these two episodes are a game changer! We hope you enjoy these conversations and share the link with a leader who could benefit from it. 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!
