1084: Remote Work Productivity in Asynchronous Companies, with Liam Martin

Sales Enablement Podcast with Andy Paul

Liam Martin is the Co-Founder of Time Doctor and Running Remote, and the author of Running Remote. Increasing productivity has always been one of the goals in sales. However, it is the metrics to measure productivity which has been changing with the move to hybrid and remote work.Liam shares how asynchronous companies, which have adopted an “unmanagement” style, maintain productivity with less management within a digital environment. He also comments on the role of management as not merely a means of reporting up, but as the ideal role for coaching and development on the ground.HIGHLIGHTS Time Doctor tracks sellers' specific actions to aid productivity AI helps predict seller retention in companies Remote work and productivity of asynchronous organizations Management is not just reporting up but coaching for development Collaboration and autonomy in asynchronous organizations QUOTESTime Doctor tracks more than just time Liam: "If you can pull in a quantifiable, longitudinal metric, so the amount of demos that you've done, the amount of closes that you have, the amount of tickets that you've closed, the amount of Jira tickets that you've put together, these are all examples of API integrations that we have inside of the app, then we can measure against that output and be able to figure out who's doing this better."Asynchronous organizations are more productive working remotely Liam: "These organizations which I'm calling asynchronous companies, which is a concept which is the ability to be able to manage people without simultaneously interacting with them, I discovered that their managerial layer is about 50% thinner than their on-premise counterparts. So there are more people doing work in asynchronous organizations than there are people managing people doing work in asynchronous organizations." The nature of collaboration is different in asynchronous organizations Liam: "The only tickets that stay up there are the EQ issues or the soft issues. Generally, they are, Andy's got a problem with Liam and we need to be able to solve it, because Andy feels like Liam is pushing in on his departmental requirements or what he's responsible for and Liam doesn't agree and we need to be able to work that out. So those human components is what the vast majority of our synchronous time is reserved for."Find out more about Liam and get his book in the links below: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/liammcivormartin/ Time Doctor Website: https://www.timedoctor.com/ Running Remote Book Website: https://www.runningremotebook.com/ More on Andy:Connect on LinkedInGet Andy's new book "Sell Without Selling Out" on AmazonLearn more at AndyPaul.comSponsored by:Revenue.io | Unlock exponential growth with an AI-powered RevOps platform | Revenue.ioScratchpad | The fastest way to update Salesforce, take sales notes, and stay on top of to-dos | Scratchpad.comBlueboard | World’s leading experiential rewards & recognition platform | Blueboard.comExplore the Revenue.io Podcast Universe:Sales Enablement PodcastRevOps PodcastSelling with Purpose Podcast

The Methodology of Billion-Dollar Remote Teams with Liam Martin, Co-Founder and CMO of Time Doctor

Forge Ahead

Regarding work, one thing matters most to Liam Martin: autonomy. He was passionate about remote work before working from home became common practice. When he co-founded productivity software Time Doctor in 2011, he wanted to allow people the same flexibility C-suite executives usually enjoyed. Since then, he has seen improved productivity, lower overhead, and greater satisfaction among his employees.“Life's great when you can travel wherever you want,” Liam says. “You can work wherever you want, whenever you want, with whoever you want, for as long as you want. That really is, to me, actually, the promise of entrepreneurship. And for the first time in the history of civilization, we've actually been able to provide this to not only the business owner but also [to] the workers inside of those organizations, which I think is a very special time in history.”Time Doctor grew 200% in 2020 alone with the mass increase in remote workers. Liam wrote about his experience leading remote teams in his upcoming book, “Running Remote.” The book is based on Liam’s observations about remote team management across nine different countries and his studies of billion-dollar-plus remote teams. “Running Remote” will be released in August 2022.In this episode of Forge Ahead, Liam talks about operating asynchronously, freeing up employees to do the deep work, and speaking your client’s language.Visit www.forgeaheadpodcast.com for the full Show Notes or to learn more about the show.
