1. Kris’ story about managing remotely
2. Kris’s blueprint – the five steps to managing a remote team. (Note: this applies whether they’re in the building or not.)
3. If you’ve switched to a remote culture, you should be doing lots more communicating.
4. “You aren’t paying people for time. You’re paying people for results.”

At some point in the trajectory of a founder’s business growth, she inevitably finds that some of the people she’s working with haven’t kept pace… the business has outgrown their skillset. Here's how the “re-offer” can help.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. This is a good time to re-evaluate why you do what you do, what it is that you do, what the reason is to continue doing it and who the people are that you want to surround yourself with.
  2. Detailed steps to the re-offer.
  3. How to use the re-offer in a “culture reset.”
  4. Using the re-offer to address poor behavior performance, someone who has never had a job description or someone who isn’t fulfilling the needs of their position.
