Remote Leadership

How to Accelerate Achievement and Create a Community in a Work-From-Home World

With a Foreword by Jerry Colonna

After three years of explosive growth and on the verge of profitable, in March of 2020, JumpCrew found itself in the same position as all others. Virtually overnight, offices across the country woke up to a new world of Zoom meetings and virtual happy hours. No longer could leaders motivate their teams by walking the floor. Leaders who relied on their presence became powerless and employees who benefited from accidental coaching or the sense of community unique to the traditional workplace became isolated.

How would a young company whose success was so closely tied to its office camaraderie and culture of accountability, collaboration and face-to-face interaction not only survive, but thrive in this new world?

Remote Leadership: How to Accelerate Achievement and Create a Community in a Work-From-Home World is the story of this defining moment and the lessons learned — from the realization that the only way forward was to carry that culture into this new virtual world and embrace a geographically diverse workforce.

It’s also an in-depth look at what it means to be a leader at a time when the conventional role of the leader is being challenged and how to transform your organization into a stronger and more impactful community.

Remote Leadership is a powerful reminder that, as David says, “learning and growth only come when you step out of your comfort zone.” That to lead you must also be willing to look within.

David's book -- which was fast-paced and engaging -- really helped me think about how I wanted to structure my company for permanent remote work. His insights into the changes that needed to be made at JumpCrew's mainly in-office culture helped me see some of the things that I had been doing that needed to change, and his heartfelt look at how this shift affected him and his family really helped make the stories in Remote Work personal. I'd recommend this to any executive figuring out how to manage a shift from in-office to remote!
