Is it possible to have a meaningful, well-paid career without a daily commute to a physical office? Can a team or organization work well together even when physically apart? What if an organization’s “work from home” policy was a competitive advantage, while also helping address important social, diversity, urban planning and environmental issues? This book is for those who are working in, joining, or starting a distributed team. This easy-to-read book has short chapters with practical takeaways on topics like how to handle complex interpersonal topics such as hiring, firing, one-on-ones, reviews, trust and group culture. Drawn from 26+ years working in distributed organizations, this book gathers what did — and did not — work.
