Many organizations are shifting to a remote workforce in order to be competitive and many more are built as remote-first outfits. The sudden global experiment brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has proven that remote teams are in fact possible and widely effective across industries when done right. Remotely Possible addresses the challenges and opportunities that remote teams face, starting with the current landscape and looking forward to the future of  remote working.

Author Shawn Belling insightfully addresses what leaders must do to effectively lead a remote team, whether it is in a remote-first organization or in an organization trying the concept for the first time. There are long-term strategies you can adapt to your own organization, and Remotely Possible explores these in addition to the benefits that come with broad acceptance of remote workforces. Globally distributed teams are more common than ever, and with the correct approach and digital plan, yours can take an organization to the next level.

Belling acknowledges the challenges that come with changes to a team’s work culture, communication tools, and foundations of trust in an all-digital, remote workplace. Adaptation is key and Remotely Possible gives you all the practical, real-world lessons you need to tackle these major changes head-on. Remote work is here to stay.
