Business at the speed of trust
Let me ask you a question. Those people you work with, the other members of your team. Do you trust them?
A blog about modern working
So you’ve begun life as a remote worker, and you’re quite pleased with your all new telecommuter self. The heat’s off, right? You’ve got more freedom, nobody breathing down your neck, nobody expecting the unexpected of you. Its the good life, and you’ve earned the break. You can put your feet up, get some rest, deadline shmeadline….
We’ve all had great managers, great leaders. People who motivate and energise us. People who know how to engage us in our work, and push us forward. They possess real skills and its a pleasure to work for them. They don’t just manage. They understand how to lead. A good manager leads us towards our goals and drives us forward. They inspire us to be better.
The digital nomads are out there, working away. They’re happy and settled in the routine of telecommuting. Safe in the knowledge that they are trusted to get the job done without being cajoled, reminded, poked or pestered into submission by the boss. They feel empowered and engaged, and providing they can avoid distraction - every remote worker’s demon - the job gets done. Things move forward, and projects get completed. Its a good thing.
