The Remote Workspace

  • Remote work utopia is freedom over time
  • Empower employees to function in their personal best environment that remote work allows. Focusing on productivity as the priority, regardless of strategy.
  • Remote working cultures gain a lot of advantages from asynchronous working conditions
  • Executives and management are optimizing for themselves, not for their team when it comes to remote environments
  • Leadership often wants to maintain their in-office micromanagement strategies remotely; however, this leads to unnecessary inefficiencies

The Work From Home Design

The Work From Home Design

  • Design your work-from-home space for comfort
  • Even though there is a looming unknown about what a hybrid working environment will look like, investing in a comfortable and productive WFH setup will be beneficial
  • Don’t manage your time, manage your energy
  • Constantly reevaluate if your meetings boost or drain your energy; optimize your meetings to be productive, valuable, and inspiring, or don’t schedule them at all

Problem Solving

Problem Solving

Optimum problem-solving starts with ‘what is the current and desired state and what changes need to be met’ rather than starting with ‘why and how’

Good managers identify the problem, reevaluate expectations, and trust that they have a team of experts to solve the problem

Remote Meetings

Remote Meetings

  • Don’t manage your time, manage your energy.  
  • If you dread or hate meetings, you’re not reevaluating the desired effects from your meetings
  • If your energy feels depleted after a meeting, it’s highly likely everyone else does too
  • Don’t let anyone else manage your time; scheduling assistants put your peers/colleagues time at risk
  • The small buffer time that it takes for an assistant to communicate a meeting change is wasting the other meeting attendants’ time. For that small buffer time, the two parties have different expectations of how the upcoming time will be spent.

Problem Solving: The Effective Approach

Focus on ‘what is the current and desired state and what changes need to be met’ before any discussion of ‘why and how’

  • The meetings with your engineers should be very quick. Identify the problem, reevaluate expectations, and trust that they are the experts.
  • You’ll never be able to identify all the problems you may encounter, don’t let the probability of a problem discount the goal

Remote Work: Utopia

  • Good communication in remote environments don’t start with a question, they start with the question and potential options of a solution
  • People work when they want to work while still meeting all expectations
  • People got a taste of the flexibility to optimize their family time (or other priorities) and don’t want to give it up. And shouldn’t have to if they maintain work standards.
  • Most jobs that can work remotely don’t really have the strict time boundaries that have existed in office settings for decades

Asynchronous Remote Work

Asynchronous Remote Work allows people to be working all across the world, all urgent things can be covered in appropriate standard work hours in the given location.

Recreating an office environment remotely is absurd.

Remote Work Dystopia

Remote Work Dystopia

  • Lack of clarity in communication is leading to numerous issues; employees just want an answer of what the working model will be and evidence of pro/con for that model
  • Employees have the power to negotiate their position more than ever now. If employees don’t see the value of being in the office, they will find a company that matches their values
  • Constantly moving the goal post is more cost-inefficient than companies even realize

Update Meetings

Update Meetings

Many managers value power construct over productivity

‘Update meetings’ are extremely unproductive and usually just waste time and fulfil the manager’s micromanagement itch.

Tools Of The Remote Workspace

Tools Of The Remote Workspace

  • Tools are overrated, contextual and thoughtful written content is more valuable than the tool
  • Many employees are experiencing Zoom fatigue
  • Having your video on on Zoom or Google Meet  is usually unnecessary, having it off can greatly reduce fatigue
  • Slack should not be overused, otherwise, it turns into water-cooler environments or the micromanagement of your colleagues/peers

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
