Remote work is eating the world. Embrace it.

The Performing Remote OS is a comprehensive set of complete, measurable, and sometimes contrarian strategies to empower engineering managers in their remote leadership mastery.

Driven by 3 strong pillars.

People-first leadership sets the foundation to empower your team and release stress, self-leadership helps you and your team succeed in remote work, and systems provide the structure and support for your team to thrive.

People-first Leadership

Empower people with clear directions, decentralized authority, and psychological safety, to thrive in remote work.

Self-leadership

Learn self-discipline and lead a team that owns their work and invests in personal development to make it scale.

Systems

Build explicit systems and processes to support your team and be the lighthouse they need to shine.

Team working together to climb a mountain

Highly actionable modules you can use today.

The OS is structured around modules with tens of comprehensible lessons and systems designed to be quickly executable with clear key performance indicators to track progress.

The Why

The reasons to put your people first and give them a reason to care about their work. Why empower your team to set their own goals and take responsibility for their own success.

Core Values

Establish core values that reflect your commitment to people and promote a positive team culture. Encourage your team members to develop their values and live them authentically.

Think In Systems

Understand how your team members interact with each other and the systems in place. Learn how to think systemically about your own work and how it impacts the team.

Build In Public

Create opportunities for your team members to share their work and feedback with each other. Be open to feedback and willing to share your own work in progress.

Explicit Direction

Provide your team members with clear and concise expectations. Be proactive in seeking direction and clarification when needed and create systems that help you track progress.

Asynchronous Communication

Respect the different communication styles and preferences of your team members. Be mindful of your communication style and implement systems supporting asynchronous work.

Deep Execution

Create an environment where your team members feel supported and empowered to do their best work. Set ambitious goals for yourself and be committed to seeing them through.

Decentralized Authority

Trust your team members to make decisions and take ownership of their work. Be comfortable making decisions and taking risks and build systems that distribute authority.

Distributed Knowledge

Encourage your team members to share their knowledge and expertise with each other. Create systems that make it easy for team members to access and share knowledge.
