Episode Title: Intentional Leadership
How can you be more intentional as a leader in the remote work environment? Let’s talk about it, next on The Perna Syndicate.
Ep 718 show:
You’re now in The Perna Syndicate—and I’m glad you’re here! All week we’ve been talking about remote work, and how employers can better understand their people. I recently got the chance to talk to authors Ali Greene and Tamara Sanderson, who say that there are three building blocks to making the virtual model work.
The very first point they make is for managers to lead with intentionality. Let’s dive a little deeper into what they mean.
To be intentional with your leadership, especially in the remote work space, you need to know exactly what you want the end goal to be. What is the end game, the outcome that matters most? How do you want decisions to be made? What do you want your work culture to look like? What is important above all else?
Once you can answer these questions, be intentional in implementing them. The virtual distance of remote work acts as a magnifying glass. It really makes you think about the details, and that’s why having a clearly defined plan, ahead of time, helps foster intentionality.
When you make your remote work culture happen by design rather than by accident, you can lead your team to greater productivity, connection, and overall job satisfaction. What it takes is a dose of deliberate, goal-driven planning—in a word, intentionality.
Tomorrow: There’s one more non-negotiable in remote-work leadership that we have to talk about. Take care and we’ll see you next time on The Perna Syndicate!
