I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to improve their climate literacy so as to understand the projected impacts from the expanding climate crisis and how to adapt their workplaces in the face of these impacts.

A successful transition to remote working is hard work and as a result is VERY dependent on the tone leadership team strikes. There are some non-negotiables for the leadership team.

1) They must be 100% onboard AND committed to making the transition work.
2) They must acquire the digital literacy and fluency skills to be able to “work-out-loud” digitally. (ie be as visible and accessible digitally as they would be in-person)
3) They need to lead the transition from the front.

Without the above in place a remote work transition WILL falter.

Do you agree?
