Working from home – once a privilege, now an imperative. The Covid-19 pandemic has sped up this transformation at an unprecedented rate. The impact on the task of leading people cannot be underestimated: what does good leadership look like when employees and supervisors alike are sequestered in their living rooms?
Thanks to the pandemic, telling good leaders from bad has never been easier. In fact, one year into the crisis, scientists have detected a number of indicators for successful remote leadership. By measuring teams’ engagement and results, and comparing them to the behaviour of their leaders, researchers have come to a number of surprising conclusions.
In spite of all the empty cubicles, hallways and cafeterias, productivity and motivation need not decline because of the lack of in-person meetings – provided leaders know how to create an environment of collaboration, trust and care for each other. In their eighth Academy of Behavioral Economics, the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute and FehrAdvice & Partners will present the latest evidence and facts from the forefront of experimental science. Together with some of the most respected experts, we will look into the success factors for remote collaboration.
