Why remote work makes it difficult to run a high performing team

This Twitter thread is excellent:

“Remote work is fine until you join a new team and then spend 2 years building a rapport with your colleagues, one that would normally have taken about 6-8 weeks. Remote work is fine when you adjust your planning and execution processes to depersonalise ownership and delivery and prioritise direction over collaboration and innovation. Remote work is fine if you are blind to body language and human non-verbal communication. Remote work is fine if you prefer to conduct brainstorming over DM and exclude other colleagues from chipping in when they have an opinion or additional information to share. Remote work is fine if you don’t care to exchange casual banter with your colleagues at the start of the day, while people gather for a meeting, a casual office walk, in the kitchen getting coffee where you’ll likely talk about your weekend, share opinions, learn new things, find common interests, take a lunch break and build friendships.”
