509: Transitioning to Remote Leadership, with Tammy Bjelland
Tammy Bjelland: Workplaceless Tammy Bjelland is the Founder and CEO of Workplaceless, a training company that teaches remote workers, leaders, and companies how to work, lead, grow, and thrive in distributed environments. Workplaceless is a fully distributed company supporting enterprise, remote, and government clients such as Toyota, GitLab, and the US Department of Commerce. In this conversation, Tammy and I discuss how leaders can establish a mindset that helps them lead remote teams more successfully. We discuss how to take on a placeless mindset, explore the importance of shifting from how to why, and the best starting points for a communication charter. Key Points Five key principles of a Placeless mindset: Embrace location independence over physical presence. Empower autonomous work with flexible schedules. Impact productivity with asynchronous communication and collaboration. Be open and transparent. Trust your colleague and employees. Fear of losing control tends to keep organizations from being able to make useful shifts in mindset. Leaders and organizations that move beyond the “how” of remote work and focus first on the “why” will have more sustainable success. Beware of simply trying to replicate what happened in the office. The whole point of remote work is that it is not like the office. Establish a communication charter. This makes it clear what tools are best — and also how to intervene when things don’t work as anticipated.

#149 – Diana Walsh Pasulka: Aliens, Technology, Religion, and the Nature of Belief
Artificial Intelligence Podcast Podcast Notes Key Takeaways * Attempting to prove and understand the ultimate, objective reality of the universe is largely futile * A more practical and reasonable question to ask is whether our beliefs accurately map our observations of reality * Diana has noticed that people who genuinely believe they have experienced extraterrestrial life don’t like to share their experiences because of the ridicule anyone who makes those types of claims receive * In purely practical terms, religion is an evolutionary advantage * “How do we survive together as cultures that don’t clash? Well we have to have a belief structure that allows us to and I think religions function that way.” – Diana Pasulka * “The world is much more mysterious than we think it is. There are more mysteries in this life than your philosophy provides for.” – Diana Pasulka * Many people part of the space program claimed to have been in contact with non-human intelligence and received “downloads of information” which they then used to create familiar technologies which have been introduced to the public * “Nietzsche was basically making a historical statement by ‘God is dead’” – Diana Pasulka * “He’s making a historical statement that at that point in time with science just getting better and industrialization happening the idea of this thing beyond what we know beyond as material reality is dead. This substrate of Western civilization is dead.” * Technogenesis: the idea that as humanity engages with technology that technology will engage back change humanity and both will evolve together in a feedback loop * This is in line with Diana’s belief that humans don’t merely “use” technology because technology also profoundly impacts us * “We might be evolving in ways that we can’t possibly perceive” – Lex Fridman * The everyday technology we interact with already profoundly affects us in subtle ways without us knowing Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.org Diana Walsh Pasulka is a professor of philosophy and religion at UNCW and author of American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, and Technology.
