Our Story

Our leadership podcast idea began at the beginning of the pandemic. We began to study the literature and talk to expert leaders. We zoomed and brainstormed and scribbled notes. We have a hypothesis. A theory. And a structure.

So, we started contemplating the following questions like:


How do you maintain a culture of openness and trust when half of your team is at “headquarters” and the other half is dispersed around the world?


Which dialogue techniques, communication skills, and mindsets demonstrate camaraderie, team spirit, personal fulfillment, independence AND mutual support over thousands of miles?


What kind of infrastructures are needed to foster accountability and results when the team is only able to get together twice a year?


How does a leader—whether a CEO, project manager, supervisor, director—develop his/her inner core to embrace vulnerability, authenticity, and empathy while also moving towards profitability?


What kind of person makes the “best” remote worker?


How do all kinds of leaders learn, practice, and embody the essence of being “virtual culture czars” as they engage workers across miles?

About the Co-Hosts

We are two seasoned consultants—one on the west coast and one on the east—who discovered we have the same belief in the power of healthy organizational cultures and cohesive teams.
While exploring how leadership, management, and teams are morphing because of technology and working “from anywhere,” our paths crossed as we were helping companies successfully function across great distances.

68. How a Covenant of Work Will Strengthen Your Hybrid Team

What if every leader in your company created a contract or a covenant that stated their obligations to their team? What if every team created a covenant where they shared their obligations as a team with their manager?
Certainly the employee working 1000s of miles from the home base would feel more taken care of since he or she would know exactly what to expect from the leader. They would also have the ability to share with their leader just how the leader is doing.

64. Find New Ways to Communicate to Strengthen Relationships on Your Hybrid Team

The way we communicate is more diverse than it ever has been. Or is it really? If you think about it, since the dawn of time, the two ways human beings have had to communicate are print and verbal communication. Today, we see those in perhaps newer ways through our email, chat groups and DM’s. Communication avenues haven’t changed much since the beginning, yet today, communication is getting increasingly more and more complicated. This begs the question, are these avenues we currently have truly enough to allow us to Team Anywhere?
On today’s podcast, we interview Josh Little, a serial entrepreneur and founder of 4 remote businesses. Josh is on a serious mission to create a team communication platform that sucks less. While trying to collaborate with his remote teams, he discovered the true challenges of remote team communication. This led him to realize that it’s time to combine the richness of a face-to-face interaction in an asynchronous time period, without the burnout of a Zoom Call. This led Josh to founding his fourth company, Volley.

62. 5 Elements Required to Prevent Business Disruption

How can leaders prevent business disruption in this hybrid and virtual workspace?
Today we interviewed Brant Cooper, author of the book Disruption Proof (Release date: November 9, 2021). Brant suggests in a time of continuous disruption, we must spend more of our time innovating in what he calls “exploration mode”. Leaders need to be more open to trying things out, experimenting, exploring and finding solutions to near-term ever-changing problems. As companies innovate in their core businesses, they are working towards building a “RAD” organization (Resilient, Aware, Dynamic), so that empowered teams solve issues quickly, and the organization is able to respond to uncertainty with agility.
This approach allows leaders and teams to be exceptionally skilled to Team Anywhere.
