Why Working Remote is More Toxic Than In Person: Lessons for Leaders in the Hybrid Workforce with Chris Savage

Entrepreneurs on Fire

Chris Savage is the Co-Founder and CEO of Wistia, a leading video hosting platform that gives marketers everything they need to get bigger results from their videos and podcasts. Top 3 Value Bombs: 1. Remember that all of us are complex human beings sitting at home. Just because we are not in-person anymore doesn’t mean that we don’t care who we’re working with and how the work is done. You have to build systems that allow you to hear from your people. 2. A lot of communication and understanding with how people are doing happens when in person. These are really simple things but are unbelievably hard when remote if you don’t have systems for them. 3. In a world where work and life are so blended, it is really important that people will come to wherever they are working and feel like what they’re doing at work matters.

Remote Teams to Leverage Growth/Reduce costs - Support DDS

The Nifty Thrifty Dentists

NOTES: This week, Dr. Glenn Vo sat down with Brenda McNulty, Dental Group Director at Support DDS.Brenda McNulty has played a multitude of roles in the dental realm for over 20 years. But for the last ten years, Brenda has settled on working as a dental consultant for Support DDS.Early on in her career, Brenda realized that many dentists weren’t happy when they tried to delegate dental roles to employees from outsourcing agencies. The virtual team members were hard to work with, bills would constantly fluctuate, they were difficult to onboard, or worse.Eventually, Brenda found a hero in Support DDS. In fact, she was so happy that she began sending dental professionals their way. Eventually, they up-and-offered her a full-time job.Support DDS’s facility in Zimbabwe is a lot like an office setting in a first-world (org charts, supervisors, military-grade IT security, etc.).While every employee technically works virtually, they’re actually connected to a computer within your practice walls. If you wanted to, you could even watch their every keystroke.Brenda trains employees herself—insurance verification, scheduling patients, basic communication skills; you name it.Support DDS allows you to customize the training of your virtual team member. You can teach them how to do things your way without outsourcing nor insourcing.Support DDS charges a flat fee; don’t worry about any nickel-and-diming. With no contract involved, you’ll get a remote team with no contractual obligations.Your front office can focus on patient experience and become more productive than ever. Even better, you’ll be providing your virtual workers with an income that might be able to support entire families.Support DDS offers an ethical route for outsourcing. Their staff is highly educated with limited opportunities for employment in Zimbabwe, where most can’t find a way to get paid in U.S. dollars, get healthcare benefits, or commute to work.Support DDS offers a “win-win-win.”—they aren’t about the money; they’re about creating jobs for underprivileged folks. They even donate 51% of their earnings!Vo has seen Support DDS in action, from DSOs to boutique FFS practices.Learn about:What tasks are slowing you down that could be outsourced to a virtual team member?What makes Support DDS better than the other outsourcing companies?What tasks can you delegate to one of Support DDSs virtual team members?And more!

Analyzing the Future of Marketing and Remote Work with Salesforce’s Edward McDonnell

Marketing Trends

In 2021, data flows from multiple pathways to a marketer's desk, and the insights generated from those datasets feels endless. But one thing is becoming increasingly apparent; despite the information you have on hand, it’s still never enough.“33% of marketers say they are completely satisfied with their ability to use data and to create more relevant customer experiences. A third of marketers feel like they have the ability to use data, to create a customer experience that's relevant. Think about all the relevancy that we now have with the brand, to think that only a third of marketers think that they're able to do it. To me, that's the opportunity for marketers to figure out how to go from not just using data, but making it relevant to customer experience.”On this episode of Marketing Trends, Edward McDonnell, the Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for Marketing Cloud at Salesforce, returns to discuss the future of marketing. Plus, he explains how remote work is enabling marketers to build the most talented teams possible thanks to software that allows them to succeed from anywhere. Ed also explains why it's time to focus on reskilling the modern-day marketer.Main Takeaways:More Control, Please: Two-thirds of marketers in a recent survey stated the data that they receive is not painting a clear enough picture for them when it comes to their customers. Marketers in 2021 want more control of their data — where it’s coming from and how it is used so that they can create a more agile and elastic marketing strategy.Hit that Subscribe Button: Subscription marketing is a growing channel for marketers, but it goes far beyond the technology that enables it. Subscription marketing consistently challenges marketers not just from a sales and retention perspective, but it’s forcing them to rethink how they produce content, and how that content keeps users connected and engaged with a brand.Upleveling Your Skillset: Marketers are not lacking creativity, but the way companies engage with them from a remote perspective must change. Businesses need to rethink how marketers can be successful in a remote-first world. This means putting more of a focus on creating workflows that can enable an efficient creative process regardless of where team members are.---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

537: How to Engage Remote Teams, with Tsedal Neeley

Coaching for Leaders

Tsedal Neeley: Remote Work RevolutionTsedal Neeley is a professor at the Harvard Business School. Her work focuses on how leaders can scale their organizations by developing and implementing global and digital strategies. She has published extensively in leading scholarly and practitioner-oriented outlets and her work has been widely covered in media outlets such as the BBC, CNN, Financial Times, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, and The Economist.She was named to the Thinkers50 On the Radar list for making lasting contributions to management and is the recipient of many other awards and honors for her teaching and research. She is the author of Remote Work Revolution: Succeeding from Anywhere*.In this conversation, Tsedal and I explore what the research shows us about productivity and fear around remote work. We highlight three key principles that leaders can lean in on in order to engage remote teams better. Plus, Tsedal provides practical examples on how almost any leader can put these principles into action.Key Points The research has been clear for decades that employees are more productive working remotely. Surveillance software and services are almost always a poor direction for leaders and organizations. Leaders should structure unstructured time for informal interactions — and should be the ones who initiate these conversations. Emphasize individuals and individual differences, even more so than you might in person. Avoid referring to people by their membership in subgroups. In addition to not shutting down conflict, leaders in remote settings need to force it, so the best ideas can emerge on the team.Resources Mentioned Remote Work Revolution: Succeeding from Anywhere* by Tsedal Neeley Tsedal Neeley’s websiteInterview NotesDownload my interview notes in PDF format (free membership required).Related Episodes How to Build Psychological Safety, with Amy Edmondson (episode 404) Transitioning to Remote Leadership, with Tammy Bjelland (episode 509) The Way Out of Major Conflict, with Amanda Ripley (episode 529)Discover MoreActivate your free membership for full access to the entire library of interviews since 2011, searchable by topic.

How do we Properly Secure Remote Work

IT Visionaries

Are cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated, more frequent? Do people even care anymore? Do businesses care anymore? As these threats rise in frequency and the monetary damage continues to increase, why aren’t businesses taking the necessary steps to protect their systems, data, and customers? Anthony Johnson is the Managing Partner and CISO of DelveRisk and during a roundtable discussion with Rohit Parchuri, an industry veteran and security advisor, Johnson spoke at length about the threat cybersecurity poses today.“Cyber can be fully catastrophic to a company. A big enough cyber event could delete the backups, could delete the ability of the company to operate, and just completely wipe the organization. There is not another threat that can be as macro systemic to any one organization.”Those are strong words from Anthony, but the subject matter is just as stiff. On this episode of IT Visionaries, Anthony and Rohit discuss a host of topics, including how recent events have shifted the spotlight on network security, and they debate whether security breaches will make a difference in the long run. The two also touch on why security can often take a backseat to the goals of the company. To learn more, keep listening!Main TakeawaysAre you Worried Now: The No.1 reason most companies end up with breeches is due to negligence when it comes to their security measures. A passive system is a network ripe for issues. Make sure you are consistently educating leadership on the risk of passive networks.Can I Get An Adjustment? It’s more important than ever for security professionals to align their personal goals with that of their companies. When your value set is not aligned, you may create a security strategy that will not be backed by leadership or have company-wide buy-in.Rising Threat Level: While risk models are important in order to understand where a network is vulnerable, it’s equally imperative to understand the types of threats your company might be vulnerable to and understand what the motivations of the attacker might be. Doing this will help quickly identify what is a need for your system against what is a want.IT Visionaries is brought to you by the Salesforce Platform - the #1 cloud platform for digital transformation of every experience.
