Personal User Manuals for Distributed Teams

Build Their Judgement Part 3
The best leaders share their wisdom and experience with their team members, to build their judgement and give them greater power, responsibility and authority. Traditionally, this has been done in person, so this needs new skills for working with distributed teams. In this third episode of this three-part series, we talk about "opening the door" - that is, giving them the chance to speak up and be heard, inside and outside the organisation.<br /><hr><p style='color:grey; font-size:0.75em;'> See <a style='color:grey;' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='https://acast.com/privacy'>acast.com/privacy</a> for privacy and opt-out information.</p>

Design Thinking for Distributed Teams
Employee engagement is an important factor in the workplace, because an engaged workforce is a motivated workforce, and a motivated workforce is more productive.

Continuous Improvement in Distributed Teams
As a leader, you know the importance of constant, consistent, ongoing improvement in your systems, processes, and operations.

Collaborative Overload
We now have so many ways to collaborate - faster, more efficiently, and with more people. But is collaboration always such a good thing?

Nine Things Successful People Do Differently
The old way of setting goals is to sit down every January and set your goals for the next 12 months. But that doesn't work anymore because the world is changing so fast.

This episode is based on a little book by Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson about how to set and achieve goals.<br /><hr><p style='color:grey; font-size:0.75em;'> See <a style='color:grey;' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='https://acast.com/privacy'>acast.com/privacy</a> for privacy and opt-out information.</p>
