Thinking Remote with Pilar Orti
Play • 55 min

Is it possible to have your team members work visibly and still respect their own individual processes? Pilar Orti says “yes” - but only if you are willing to have some hard conversations - and ask the right questions! Join us for a diverse conversation with the co-author of Thinking Remote, the latest book that should be part of every remote leader’s library. 

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the most successful remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

Pilar Orti is a voice actress, a coach, a writer, and a speaker, as well as the host of the 21st Century Work-Life podcast. She is one of the most prolific producers of content covering both remote working and managing remote teams, and her new book, Thinking Remote, was released just last month.

In this episode, we discuss topics such as how the concept of “Visible Teamwork” beats “Working Out Loud,” how to coach incredible employees that are having trouble adapting to the remote work-style, and the value of understanding that no tool was made specifically for you, so you shouldn’t be committed to letting them dictate your processes. And we also ask the taboo question: how can remote work go terribly wrong?
