Scaling Startups Remotely with Wanda Haddock (Interview)

Scaling Startups Remotely with Wanda Haddock (Interview)

May 28, 2021

When you think of a startup, you might, like many of us, think of a small, close-knit group tightly packed into a space, fervently building the future of the company. While this is not always the case, it is true that successful startups rely on scaling a small, effective group to reach critical mass and grow. Remote work can be an additional challenge to this, which is why we were excited to speak with Wanda Haddock, I/O Psychologist and People Consultant - and Founder of LeadingwithLove.io. We discuss anything and everything about the human experience of interacting and connecting remotely. Connect with Wanda on LinkedIn here.

Tapping the Shoulder, with Patrick Burns (Interview)

Tapping the Shoulder, with Patrick Burns (Interview)

May 21, 2021

The difference between 'going remote' and 'embracing remote' is acknowledging that remote is different - and so it's not as easy as flipping a switch and everything is otherwise normal. It may require different thinking, different tools, and different habits to make it work effectively for your team. That's why we're so excited to speak with Patrick Burns, Co-Founder of Commons.so, who have created a tool that addresses remote differently, and tries to recreate a more human experience.

The Remote Commute

The Remote Commute

May 14, 2021

Who ever thought we might miss the morning commute??

It might seem crazy, but we (and a lot of other people) are missing the commute. Not for the traffic, the drive (or bus ride) or the exhaust fumes....but the decompression time. The opportunity for a break between work and... not work.

Today we're talking about missing that commute and some ways of trying to replace what we're missing out on.

Goal Setting in the Remote World

Goal Setting in the Remote World

April 30, 2021

We're talking goal setting! - particularly that sweet spot of 90 day goals. How they can motivate you, unite and direct a team, and how critical an activity this can be, particularly in the remote environment.

Team Activities in the Remote World

Greg shares with us an example of a remote team activity he ran a few weeks ago with a client software team. We talk about how people responded, what worked, and what could have been better (and why that was fine!).

Has your team been running activities? Share the experience - what's working for you? For you, what makes the difference between "oh great, we have to do some activity" and "wow, that was fun, I missed connecting with people"?
