March 2020? April 2020? May 2020?
Whenever the impact of the Pandemic became a reality for you and your organization, the change was deep and fast.
No matter how you and your organization reached this point, we must all accept a fundamental truth:
Working Remotely is now and forever a core business strategy that affects every area of every business.
The key to success is developing the organizational speed, agility and resilience to work in a “hybrid” remote world, enabling some teams and team members to work on site and others to work remotely at least some of the time and even 100% of the time.
We have looked to McKinsey for strategic direction and have adopted the following Working Remote Manifesto:
Will you seize the opportunity to gain speed, agility and resilience?
Will you wait for a return to the way things were and watch your competitors accelerate by you?
Our Remote Guides enable your organization to gain speed, agility and resilience while working remotely.
Our Remote Guides do not work from a position of actual authority in your organization. Each of our Remote Guides lead from a position of influence, often taking a servant-leadership stance.
Our Remote Guides can work with a single remote team or multiple remote teams. In larger organizations, multiple Remote Guides are available to accelerate your transformation to working remotely with speed, agility and resilience.
Every organization working remotely is learning every day how to work more effectively together.
But the journey is often a long and winding road as teams evolve through the stages of group development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and swarming. Of course, teams can get stuck in any of these stages and fail to reach the swarming level.
Our Remote Guides are uniquely qualified to detect these setbacks and lead your teams on their working remote journey. In addition, we offer a wide range of online resources to accelerate your teams' journey to speed, agility and resilience while working remotely.
Building Personal, Interpersonal & Team Skills for Remote Team Performance
Implementing Agile Values, Principles, Processes and Events for Team Speed & Agility
Developing Servant Leadership Skills for Organizational Resilience
