Remote, Not Distant

Adult; Business & Personal Finance; (Market)

The workplace is changing. Will you adapt or fall behind? While most companies have struggled to keep their culture alive remotely since the pandemic, some are successfully riding the waves of the future. To the outside observer, it seems like they were lucky. In reality, building a workplace culture strong enough to thrive at a distance doesn't happen by chance but by design. In this practical, meticulously researched book, top culture thought leader Gustavo Razzetti provides a roadmap to understand, adapt to, and succeed in a hybrid workplace. Razzetti has spent years investigating the leading edges of this revolution, including Amazon, Slack, GitLab, Volvo, and Microsoft, to name just a few. The lessons are simple yet stunning. Through insights, real-life examples (both successes and failures), exercises, and experiments, Razzetti will guide you through today's rapidly changing workplace to improve collaboration, whether your team members work from home, the office, or both. Remote, Not Distant will walk you through a five-step process to build a strong culture in a hybrid workplace, including how to: Reset your culture, avoiding the pitfalls of remote work Align your team around a shared future Create a remote workplace where people belong, collaborate, and innovate Lean into hard, courageous conversations to solve conflict Collaborate in a more productive way, avoiding burnout Increase speed and liberate your team from unproductive meetings
Reviews
“The Great Resignation is turning into the Great Reshuffle. People are not just leaving the workforce but also reconfiguring their relationship with work,” Razzetti (Stretch Your Team) writes in this energizing reshaping of contemporary workplaces. Offering readers down-to-earth, refreshing advice on what he terms “culture design,” a process of structuring company culture around the needs of its employees rather than focusing solely on profitability, Razzetti breaks down crucial steps for businesses to adapt to the demand for remote work while continuing to ensure industry longevity—and he accomplishes that feat with efficiency and vision.

Razzetti is persuasive in his exhortation that the workplace has undergone a fundamental shift that must be respected and accommodated: “The hybrid workplace is here to stay,” he declares, arguing that organizations must shift their focus from rewarding employee input to recognizing goals and results—and he makes the bold claim that “When done correctly, remote work increases productivity and work enjoyment.” To that end, Razzetti outlines actionable steps for companies to forge stable and connected remote cultures, including changing feedback from a manager-fixes-flaws mindset to a collaborative process, creating powerful company rituals to generate a sense of inclusion, instilling trust between colleagues, and more.

Highlights include hands-on activities to implement Razzetti’s guidance, ranging from clever organizational icebreakers that promise to enhance belonging, to a “culture reset canvas” worksheet that will help companies redefine hybrid workplace cultures. QR codes to download and personalize the guide’s exercises keep the material relevant, and Razzetti’s employee-minded focus will appeal to a progressive workforce. For those concerned about the potential downside to remote workplaces, he also problem solves how to keep employees engaged, offers insights on psychological safety to bring awareness to employee vulnerability, and even touches on safe camera guidelines for video interactions during remote meetings. This is a friendly and discerning call-to-action for all levels of the workforce.

Takeaway: An easy-to-grasp guide on building successful remote workplaces.

Great for fans of: Chris Dyer and Kim Shepherd’s Remote Work; Alida Miranda-Wolff’s Cultures of Belonging.
