Remote Not Distant

Published: Monday, May 29, 2023 - 12:01

(Newman Communications: Chicago) -- Hybrid and remote work is here to stay. What will it take for your company to succeed in the new normal?

The pandemic taught many businesses a very valuable lesson: Those who don’t adapt will get left behind. Some businesses managed to not only survive but actually thrive in a remote and hybrid work model. What’s their secret?

Top culture thought leader Gustavo Razzetti answers this question in his practical, meticulously researched book Remote Not Distant: Design a Company Culture That Will Help You Thrive in a Hybrid Workplace. The author and consultant provides a road map to understand, adapt to, and succeed in a hybrid workplace. After spending years studying businesses, including Amazon, Slack, GitLab, Volvo, Microsoft, and other successful organizations, his solid grasp of the topic will challenge your perspective of hybrid and remote work.

Bonuses: When you purchase this book, you will gain access to download dozens of exclusive tools and templates to design your hybrid work culture.

Remote, Not Distant provides actionable tools for senior leaders, managers, team members, and consultants. Razzetti addresses multiple areas of culture, from keeping teams team connected and improving remote collaboration to managing asynchronous communication, facilitating courageous conversations, and defining the right hybrid model for your organization.

Razetti’s book offers insights and tools you need to succeed in a hybrid workplace:
• Key challenges that companies face when transitioning to a hybrid work model
