Watch: How to align and inspire a remote team

Managing remote teams is a challenge many leaders face under normal circumstances, but these aren't normal circumstances.

The COVID-19 virus has reshaped not only the way we work, but the way we live. There’s added pressure, stress, and uncertainty that is facing every single person on your team. With all of the daily distractions and extra stress, employees are at risk of feeling more disconnected from work and from their colleagues than ever.

Ally hosted a webinar about tackling the challenges of managing a remote team, and invited experts from Gitlab and CloudApp to join us. We're sharing that webinar, in its entirety, below. Enjoy!

The Speakers

Emilie Schario, Data Engineer at GitLab: Gitlab is the world's largest fully-remote company. Emilie will share her experience and what Gitlab has learned over the years about the tools and tactics to keep your team aligned and moving forward.

Joe Martin, VP of Marketing at Cloud App: CloudApp makes digital communication simple, and visual. In a remote world, establishing a culture around sharing quick, visual assets instead of scheduling meetings for every need can save your team countless hours (and headaches).

Matt Volm, VP of Operations at Ally.io: Not only is Matt VP of Operations for an OKR software company; he's also responsible for developing and driving Ally's internal OKR process, keeping every leader, department, and employee aligned and dancing to the same rhythm.

  • Asynchronous work
  • The value of OKRs
  • Transparency and communication
  • Alignment and trust
  • Visual Communication that saves time
  • Creating cultural moments

What’s a Rich Text element?

Heading 3 Link

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
