How can remote work outperform office work?

If executed properly, a remote-work environment can be more productive and engaging than traditional office-based work. Here’s why.

A virtual environment requires you to share leadership more and this will allow a more horizontal and less hierarchical approach to work.

Because everybody is in different locations, the 'traditional leaders' cannot do everything like they used to do in the office.

What is the impact of these new working conditions?

Suddenly what you have is an opportunity for other leaders to take responsibility, to offer creative solutions, and therefore to prove themselves. 

So remote work can become a great place for new leaders to emerge and do it even faster, which will eventually benefit your company.

But the benefits are not just about collective leadership and decentralized power.  

Remote work also fosters a more equitable and democratic working environment that brings the best out of people.

How is that so?

If done properly, in a remote work environment, it is also most likely that ‘the best ideas will win’, and this is another great news for your company. 

Remember when you used to work in an office, and you went to a meeting where usually the loudest person in the room would monopolize the whole discussion?

And in the same room, you had this introverted, brilliant person on the side, and they were not sharing their ideas.

Now, working online across locations, there’s a more collaborative spirit via a shared project/document where everyone can bring something to the table, and thus contribute to the conversation.

The role of the leader is therefore to be aware of these new dynamics and create an environment that will facilitate and foster these benefits.
