Having lived and worked in 8 countries and led distributed teams across multiple timezones, I have come to realize that the future is remote.
When companies no longer have to hire within a 60 minute commute radius, a world of opportunity opens up. You can now hire the best regardless of where they work, and your people can have the flexibility and freedom to work when and where they prefer.
With access to a world of employers, people will be able to find work aligned with their passion and purpose. Increasing both engagement and happiness. The best have already realized this, and the rest will follow. If you're not able to cater to these new demands, your people will leave. Welcome to the great resignation.
I'm on a mission to advocate and educate. To help companies and individuals embrace this brave new world. And, of course, have a little fun along the way.
