Running a remote team or company isn't easy, but it doesn't need to be so difficult
Covid may have forced you to shift your team to remote work overnight. Many months later, you may still be trying to figure things out.
You need to hire people without meeting them in-person. You need to understand how your team is performing (and feeling), without the passive water-cooler conversations at the office.
This is all new to you.
You may have spent time researching best practices online. You probably have listened to several podcasts on the topic. But there's so much advice and so little of it feels applicable to your team or company.
We get it.
That's why we've established a set of 14 guiding principles for running a remote team that are crucial to making sure remote work, well, works.
These principles (also known as mental models) are based on many years of trial and error. These high-level concepts can help you build specific playbooks, policies, and tactics that will work for your team or company.
We hope you learn from our mistakes!
