Learn success secrets from original remote-work pioneers on the mindset and strategies they developed to build and grow successful organizations from the ground up.

With the unprecedented rise in remote work due to the pandemic, many businesses have struggled with how to effectively transition to a distributed format. Meanwhile, companies who had always been remote-first had a unique advantage: a highly scalable set of work processes, a unique communication style, and the proper “async mindset” required to succeed without an office.

This groundbreaking guide unlocks the secrets and the lessons discovered by those pioneer entrepreneurs and founders who have figured out how to harness the async mindset and grow their businesses remotely in the most the seamless, freeing, and cost-effective ways.

Once you accept and master some fundamental differences, remote work can fuel higher productivity, eliminate time-wasting meetings and treacherous commutes, and strip away the ugly politics that often undermine the most talented employees. It also leads to great cultural inclusivity and richer cultural exchange.

Running Remote is for ventures of all stripes—companies small and large, one-person operations, mom-and-pop shops, and global mega-corporations. The lessons herein are as valuable for on-premises organizations as they are for the tech worker.

Readers will:

  • Master the fundamentals of the async mindset by exploring three overarching principles—deliberate overcommunication, democratized workflow, and detailed metrics.
  • Learn nuts-and-bolts techniques and real-life lessons from remote-work trailblazers who built successful all-remote organizations prior to the pandemic.
  • Gain a better understanding of why hiring, on-ramping, and managing in a remote context is totally different—again with methods and firsthand stories from the founders and leaders that did it first.
  • Lean how moving to a remote business model impacts traditional management and work processes.
