There are many ways of learning from others in our remote team: through asking for feedback and running activities where we can learn from each other.


A few updates:

Lisette is looking for beta readers and there will be a range of ways in which to give her feedback on her book. To do so, sign up to her newsletter:

Why are companies still asking people to work from home without providing them with the support they need?

Are there two “camps” of organisations working with remote teams: those that have been doing it for decades (and will not change their ways) and those making the transition who can see the potential of integrating a wide range of tech into their communications.

The main conversation:

Asking for feedback. Lisette shares how she’s gathering feedback on her TedX Talk.
