When companies shift to remote, the number of meetings increases and emails start to snowball. This information overload paradoxically creatse a sense of information scarcity. When there’s too much information, FOMO increases. No one can afford to skip a meeting or mute an email thread lest they miss the opportunity to participate. A never-ending stream of messages via Slack/Teams/Whatsapp/… requires constant monitoring, and yet many managers have no idea what is going on in their teams.
Target Audience: People Managers and people who collaborate with others.
About the Expert
With over a decade of remote experience, Valentina helps leaders and managers to adapt to distributed and hybrid realities, helping them to excel in the art of remote people management. As Empress of Product at Klaus (a conversation review platform for support teams), she leads the product organization of the fast growing SaaS startup HQs in Estonia and employees across Europe. Previous experiences include leadership roles at companies like Automattic and Yahoo Right Media, as well as the startup space. Originally from Germany, she lives close to Barcelona with her twin pre-schoolers. Yes, she does wear a tiara.
After taking some courses regarding remote leadership, I have to share my admiration towards Valentina's Remote Leadership Accelerator. The course had a surprisingly practical side, which left me take aways ready to apply after each class. An absolute must for getting your remote leadership towards the next level.
