Resources on Remote Work & Productivity

Adjusting to remote work (or managing a remote sales team) is not without its challenges.

As sales leaders, it's our job to put together processes for both ourselves and our teams to follow. It's also important for us to improve our mindset and create an environment, both in our homes and virtually, that fosters productivity.

Below are some of our best resources on remote work & productivity:

1. eBook: The Ultimate Guide to Managing a Remote Team

Managing a remote sales team is not without its challenges. On-boarding, training, check-ins, and maintaining camaraderie become difficult when teams are scattered around the country or around the globe.

But managing a remote sales team is not impossible. In fact, remote teams can be incredibly successful. And they have a much greater reach than a singular local sales team would.

If you’re exploring the possibility of going “remote,” adding new territories, or if you’re already managing a remote sales team, this eBook is here to help guide you.

Other Resources on Remote Work & Productivity

Here are the resources I mentioned in my inspiration:

1. David Linn, Co-Founder & CEO of the Generosity Series, posts daily gratitude tips on his LinkedIn.

He also came on our show to talk gratitude in the workplace. Here's the link to his episode.

In this inspiration, I mention a post he shared called “Daily Quarantine Questions” that helped get me grounded. Here are the questions:

  1. What am I grateful for today?
  2. Who am I checking in on or connecting with today?
  3. What expectations of normal am I letting go of today?
  4. How am I getting outside today?
  5. How am I moving my body today?
  6. What beauty am I creating, cultivating, or inviting in today?

2. Subscribe to the Ambition & Balance newsletter by ToDoist.

To-Doist is a time management/productivity app I use.

In their most recent newsletter, the To-Doist team included an awesome article about how to create a work shut down ritual to help you disconnect at the end of the day.

They also have great content on remote work!
