Episode Description

Leadership is complex enough as it is. - How do you know whether tasks are getting done with remote teams? - Do your workers feel isolated? - Are they interacting with just you, or collaborating with the rest of the team? Wayne Turmel, co-author of “The Long Distance Leader,” addresses these questions and more. We’ll explore ways in which the Remote Leadership Institute ( teaches you to drill down into fundamental leadership concepts like delegating: realizing that its purpose is NOT to ease your load, that’s the wrong focus; coaching and feedback: how to do it at a distance, and, collaboration and engagement, how to turn remote workers into remote teams. We’ll explore values and their importance for establishing priorities, servant leadership, the 3-O model, the Golden Suggestion, the PIN technique for getting honest feedback, and Wayne will answer your questions. Listen in as we explore How to Lead Remote Teams Effectively.

“Companies that did business from a foundation of love and purpose and practiced servant leadership produced a 1026 percent return to shareholders over a ten-year period, eight times more than the so-called Good to Great companies.” (Coetzer, 2019)

With a slant towards servant leadership, Tom interviews contemporary authors to drill down on topics such as long-distance leadership, resilience, clarity, culture, developing others, individual behavior, persuasion, managing up, spiritual best practices, character, values, trust and more.
