As more of us work from home, or even just in different locations from our co-workers, leaders need to continuously evolve and lead in a different way.
Although we have amazing virtual connectivity tools available to us here at Telstra, as a leader I’ve learned that it requires a truly conscious effort on my part to ensure that my remote teams remain engaged.
In my time at Telstra, I have worked closely with several leaders who have had an enormous influence on the company culture. They’ve made complex things simple to understand and helped me find my courage by showing that they care.
We have reached ‘peak telephony’ in the developed world – people are using less traditional voice and SMS and more data-driven messaging applications, a trend that began in 2015.
Helping to build a great team culture is something that I am passionate about and I thought I would share some examples of how I have done this through my own life story.
