  • Leaders in geographically distributed businesses should be paying attention to all of the differences that employees are dealing with, showing understanding and adapting their business practices.
  • When the leaders are intentional in how they design and run the meetings, they create time and space for more human connections at the same time.
  • Encourage flexibility and creativity of using all available channels and tools for connection and communication (in distributed workforce). Pick the right one, not the default one.
  • Have a conversation about the organization’s values and norms with your team often that everybody is on the same page.
  • Frequent voluntary turnover rates have a negative impact on your organization in more ways than one. By noticing signs of toxicity early, leaders can act and make organizations more attractive to stay.
  • Resignation decisions that are spontaneous and impulsive are often not in the best service of your wants. When you catch yourself in those thoughts, take a pause first. Get the clarity on “what you truly want” before impulsively quitting the job. Have an open conversation with your manager.
  • “Things are not as big, as personal, or as permanent as you think.”
