  • 11/13/2019: Managing Remote Employees [5:02] - 2013 - corporate manager training video
    • the right tech
    • measure by deliverables, not activities - map it to goals
    • focus on communication and inclusion (this is difficult >> e.g. playing games/informal activities)
    • healthy work life balance (how to monitor time, dedicated space, etc)
    • "dispersion": geographic, temporal, inequality in configuration, cultural diversity
  • 21 Essential Rules for Managing a Remote Team - Liam Martin of Time Doctor [21:07]
    • Video >> audio >> chat >> email
    • He recommends Jing (basically Screencast)
    • Consistency (in remote, meetings, expectations)
    • He hires two people at part time to make them compete - awful.  But he does say to pay well once you hire them.
    • Goal is to address expectations (for all those items above) - e.g.
      • Expect you to value the diversity and individuals on a team even if you don't always like them.  Learn to assume positive intent and learn to trust or communicate issues around trust so they can be resolved.
      • Be honest.
      • Expect you to build what's being asked for and ask for clarification if that's not clear.
      • Expect you to communicate risk and options and blockers.
      • Expect you to surface new work early and share.
      • Expect you to show up, although not necessarily in office, but be part of the team culture.
      • Expect you to be curious.  Ask why, ask how, continuously learn...
      • Expect you to do a dig on what you get w/in a time bucket and pass things along with more information than you probably got them (and make sure there's a communication loop for follow up, even if it's not your issue).
      • Expect to have some employees where you can't agree on expectations.

  • 11/5/2019: Queens of Infamy: Zenobia - https://longreads.com/2018/12/11/queens-of-infamy-zenobia/
    • Zenobia and her husband wanted a capital as great as — if not greater than — Rome, which, to be fair, shouldn’t have been that hard because Rome at that point was a masturbatory cesspool. I mean that mostly figuratively (if there was one thing Roman orators loved doing, it was verbally wanking off about their city), but it applies literally too, presumably.
    • ROME: S! P! Q! R! THAT’S! WHO! WE! ARE! THE SENATE! THE PEOPLE! WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED! GOOOOOOO ROME!
