Mar 30, 2021 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I have been following Professor Neeley's work for years and so I am so grateful that she has brought the work into book form. Her recommendations are both evidence-based and reality-based. This book meets the moment and is a must read for anyone in a remote work context. ...more
Remote Work Revolution was not what I expected. It's more about managing remote workers and teams in different locations than it is about personal strategies for working from home, how to set up a company for remote work, or the history of remote work. It seemed to me that this was probably a book that was already partially completed a year ago and became very timely when the pandemic began, leading to some COVID-related additions to make the book more relevant. ...more

In the last ten days, I read a book called "Remote Work Revolution: Succeeding from Anywhere." It's a newly published book by Tsedal Neeley, a professor at Harvard Business School. The book is like advice from the expert and a blueprint for succeeding in remote work with specific, actionable steps to success for both leaders and employees based on similar stories, insights, and examples about two main topics; Productivity and Trust.

4 things that stayed with me:

1- Team alignment is not synonymous
Like so many others, I moved in a remote work setup, although unlike some of my colleagues, I already had experience with it in previous positions. So all the same, I was wondering what Neeley could tell me. The pandemic wears on and like many others I've felt increasingly tired of it. I had also never been formally "trained" on it (rather, I just started working from home with random temp jobs) so I was curious what that would look like now.

Overall, I'd say if you have some experience with WFH,

Much-needed, timely insights for remote teams everywhere. Neeley's recommendations MIGHT seem like common sense, but I’ve personally experienced every challenge she mentions, and it’s often the result of good intentions combined with faulty assumptions. Leaders and employees both have to re-evaluate their actions and deliberately practice more effective communication, but that isn’t intuitive.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from this book is that conflict and disagreement are essential to b

In line with what you might expect from a HBS book, there's nothing earth shatteringly new in here, especially if you've worked in a remote environment (as many have recently), though it provides a nice summary of best practices. I enjoyed the last few chapters on remote leadership and international remote teams, as they provided insights beyond the more common sense lessons of the first few chapters. I also appreciate the action guide activities at the end of each chapter, though I haven't trie ...more

Ce livre a été selon toute vraisemblance pensé et rédigé avant la pandémie covid-19, car l'auteur y présente des arguments pour convaincre du bien-fondé du télétravail. Malheureusement, après une pandémie de plus d'un an, il est désormais démontré que le travail est possible et qu'il apporte certains avantages.
Fait à noter, le premier chapitre présente un certain intérêt, où l'auteur présente une méthode pour favoriser le travail d'équipe lorsqu'une partie ou la totalité de ses membres est à di

Like any trendy business book, this had some useful parts and some non-useful parts. There were definitely some good nuggets in here. As another reviewer said, it’s about leading remote teams, and not aimed at individual remote workers, if that’s what you’re looking for.

This book might have had more impact on me, if I was working remote, or had staff working from home. Instead it was just a well written and well thought out book. The action plans in the back of the book really seemed thoughtful and well worth understanding and implementing.

Amazing book. Any manager navigating the remote working world should read this book. 10/10 recommend.

Although this is a pretty analysis of the challenges of remote work, Neeley doesn't offer much in the solutions department, rather just showing examples sometimes ending in no fix. ...more

“This last benefit—flexibility of scheduling—is particularly invaluable for remote workers who have to negotiate the demands of work and family at the same time and is often touted as one of its more appealing benefits.” 0 likes
