Wow.

Every once in a while I re-watch one of my videos and just laugh…

This time around, I can’t believe how many times I said “distributed team”??!

You could easily play a drinking game on it and end up loaded within 10 minutes.

Not recommended btw.

For real. Don’t do it.

Instead, I wanted to take a few mins to show you how I’ve been able to manage large teams virtually, and the process I use to do this.

Many entrepreneurs struggle with the concept or the structure of having people work outside an office, but for me – it’s only ever been that way.

So over the years, I’ve built systems that have allowed me to scale up my teams quickly, take advantage of reduced salary costs, day parting (which you definitely want to be taking advantage of), and sourcing talent from a large pool (i.e. the world).

If you’re struggling to get the right people behind your mission… or are about to hire your first remote team member, then watch this training.

If you do nothing else, be sure to implement step 3 – holding daily & weekly meetings.

I use the Scrum process for project management, but the big win is in the daily stand-up that can also be delivered digitally via chat or video conference.

The key is to have everyone answer 3 questions…

  1. What did you do yesterday?
  2. What will you do today?
  3. Are there any impediments in your way?

Your job as a leader is to help everyone get unstuck (#3) and ensure their priorities (#1 & #2) match up with your expectations.

That alone is a game changer.

So be sure to watch this week’s video and leave a comment with some of your best strategies for collaborating with remote team members.

Don’t let where you live stop you from hiring incredible talent.
