Possess Remote Team Success - Value, Communication and Trust w/ Andrew McDonald Ep. 10

Remote work millennials who want to be successful.

Albert Einstein once said, "Try not to be a [person] of success. Rather become a [person] of value.”

Are you a remote team leader wondering if you are providing your team with value? Are you providing them with the proper resources so they can provide the best value to the company’s customer?

Are you a remote team member feeling stuck? Have you reached a plateau and wondering how to take it to the next level?

On this episode of Rebel + Connect Radio, Andrew McDonald, author, speaker and founder of Possess Your Success, chats with us about the three elements necessary for the success of any remote team: providing value, communication, and trust. Andrew shares with us ways to inspire your team’s creativity and increase your productivity.

Want to be able to trust that your team members and the team leader has everyone’s (and the company’s) best interest at heart?

Andrew guides his clients in a direction to make a huge impact in their own lives which then ripples out to impact others, their company and the globe.

So take a listen, and take your remote team to a place of increased value, communication and trust.

Remote Team Tools - How to Optimize Your Team's Tech and Improve Leadership with Wayne Turmel Ep. 9

Remote Team Tools - Optimize your distributed team's technology to improve leadership and increase company growth.

Did you know that ⅔ of online meeting time is considered wasted?

If you could get 10 minutes of real productivity back on every meeting you hold, would taking the time to learn your tech and teach leadership throughout your team be worth it? How soon do you think you would see the ROI on that investment?

It’s the little things that matter the most. We simply need to do things just a little bit better, and we can see massive results throughout our teams.

A study done in the UK found that teams felt commonly used remote team tools like Slack, WebX, etc were "mission critical." The study found that 80% of team members said yes, the tech is absolutely necessary to complete the tasks at hand and their work could not be completed without them. However, only 15% felt confident and competent in the use of their tools.

Does this sound like your team? What if it is and you don't even know it?

People tend to use the minimal amount of tech required in order to get on with their lives; just use the bare minimum to simply get the job done. Is this best for the success of your company though?

Success takes mindfulness and starts with “What are we trying to do?” More often than not though we are starting with “How do we do it?”

Wayne Turmel and the team at the Remote Leadership Institute take a mindful approach to the job of the remote leader. They tackle leadership first, and handle that leadership being remote second.

RLI will ask how is your team thinking about the work that needs to be done, then ask how do we do that remotely with the tools at our disposal? The last piece is how to best use the tools at hand.

Listen in and find out what a great asset Wayne and the RLI team will be to your remote team retreat!

Rebel + Connect Talks Shop - Human Solutions to Remote Work Challenges Ep. 7

As Rebel + Connect approaches its first birthday, the team thought, what better way to celebrate than to hop on Rebel + Connect Radio and chat about some of the most common challenges and questions surrounding remote work. 

The Rebel + Connect team is aware that remote work presents individuals, leaders, and organizations with unique human challenges. We encourage remote leaders to create cultures of meaning by cultivating rebellion, harmony, adventure, impact, and connection using custom retreats.

We believe with all our hearts that a human life and human communities are both beautiful phenomena that when celebrated have the power to elevate organizations large and small in ways that tech never will.

That's why we are on a mission to celebrate human connections in a digital world.

Last month, we reached out to our network for a little bit of help. We sent out a survey requesting remote team leaders to share with us their favorite (and least favorite) parts about remote work. There were some very common themes throughout the answers, and we wanted to share with you some ways to overcome the inevitable difficulties present in remote work.

So take a listen, enjoy, and feel free to share your own feedback in the comments below or by filling out the survey yourself! Feel free to share as well!
