In this podcast, Cornelius Fichtner and Dave Garrett, Chief Strategy & Growth Officer, discuss how to successfully lead hybrid and remote projects. The word “LEAD” is in all caps in the title because when they originally recorded the content and structure of this episode, it was all about “managing” projects. However, once it was done, it became clear that what they really talked about was leadership, so the title changed from how to successfully manage hybrid and remote projects to how to successfully LEAD hybrid and remote projects.
Projects are done by people, and project managers are responsible for ensuring that everyone on the team stays motivated. How do you do that when half of your team works from home (with a barking dog in the background), some sit next to you at their desks, and the rest are in various branch offices around the world? Welcome to the world of leading hybrid and remote projects.
In this episode, Cornelius and Dave discuss the five main challenges of remote project work, what to do about them, and how “power skills” can help.
