My SQL Server DBA colleagues, COVID-19 changed the way many of us work in remote teams as well as how remote teams are managed. While the book is an excellent guide to leading remote teams, you will see the challenges your manager is facing. For example, hiring and onboarding new members from afar, building culture remotely, tracking productivity, communicating speedily, and avoiding burnout. Remote teams are here to stay, so embrace it, and be a good remote team member too!
I give the book “Leading from Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Managing Remote Teams”, a thumbs up. Right?
