Mastering Remote Leadership

Level Up as a Remote Leader

Remote work is here to stay, but how we manage remotely has to change. The techniques that worked in person don't work virtually. Attempting to replicate what you did in the office leads to endless meetings with no time for deep work, struggles with miscommunication, and a lack of connection with your colleagues. But it doesn't have to be this way. Learn from someone who has been there. This course will help you skip years of frustrating trial and error, so you can lead even more effectively remotely than you did in person. Embrace the benefits of freedom that come with remote work, while optimizing your work to be the absolute best. By the end, you’ll have developed a working system that allows you to lead a distributed team to successfully communicate, collaborate, and thrive together.

Curriculum

Remote Work Fundamentals

You can't lead a successful distributed team without understanding how to work effectively remotely yourself. You’ll discover why what previously worked in person doesn’t work as well remotely and how slight tweaks to your current techniques can lead to big results. 


Communication

Humans are bad at repeating themselves, yet communicating more than you (initially) think is necessary is a key part of working remotely. Switch from an ineffective approach that leads to confusion to an optimized approach that keeps everyone on the same page and saves you time. 


New Hires

A virtual team falls apart without trust. Your hiring and onboarding process is where you start laying this foundation. You’ll learn how to enhance your new hire system to provide team members with a running start. 


Culture

You need a bonded team to do your job. Stop working against yourself and instead create the opportunity for serendipitous moments, increase morale, and build a thriving culture virtually. 


Asynchronous Work

Synchronous work by default is exhausting and leaves no time to think. Understand the difference between synchronous and asynchronous work styles so you know when you should ideally use each one. Marissa will share how she went from spending 80% of her workweek in meetings to 5%, while increasing velocity and output. 


The Work Forward Approach

The pressure to always be available is degrading your team’s quality of work. Spend less time running after fires and more time catching things before they spark. Leverage the Work Forward Approach and gain uninterrupted work time and a calmer approach to leadership.


Collaboration

With the right tools, remote teams have higher quality brainstorming and more creative problem solving than teams working in person. This leads to better results. Build an optimized virtual environment that allows your team to work together and use distributed time zones, cultural differences, and individual communication styles as a competitive advantage.


The New Ways of Work

Individual choice around where/when/how we work leads to higher quality output and happier team members. You’ve done the work to successfully transition to remote work, now it’s time to take advantage of the benefits. Identify the new possibilities and upgrade your quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you create this course? 

Remote work became popular overnight. People weren’t trained on how different it is from working in person and why new approaches are required to succeed. You need support in figuring out how to thrive as a remote leader without going through years of trial and error. We’re here to offer that. 

I work full-time. Do I have time to take this course?

Yes! This course was built for busy professionals like you. Marissa will lead two 1-hour live workshops each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Outside of that, expect curated resources, projects, and virtual events to meet your fellow peers leading remote teams. In total, you'll commit 3-6 hours a week on this course.

What time will live sessions happen?

The current plan is for them to be from 9:00-10:15am PT on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, we will be confirming with registered students that this timing is the best before making it official. Also, all workshops will be recorded and available to students.

Do I have to attend all of the live sessions in real-time?

It's okay if you have to miss a workshop or two. We record every live workshop and make it available for you to replay, at your convenience. With that said, we strongly recommend you make time for them so you can ask questions directly to Marissa and join productive breakout discussions.

Can I expense this/get an invoice? 

Yes! If your company offers an educational reimbursement program, we highly recommend taking advantage of it. You will be issued an invoice at checkout.
