Show Notes

Is your workplace turning hybrid or considering it? 

Is your manager not sure about all this talk of hybrid work? 

Is your workplace asking you to return fully to the office? 

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you need to listen to this episode of Ways to Change the Workplace Podcast with my guest Gustavo Razzetti who is the CEO & Founder, Fearless Culture.

About today’s episode: Gustavo’s latest book titled “Remote Not Distant: Design a Company Culture That Will Help You Thrive in a Hybrid Workplace” is full of practical lessons any organisation large or small can apply.

I talk to Gustavo about how you can be: Remote, Not Distant: Create a Thriving Hybrid Culture

  • Gustavo has a background in innovation, social psychology and human centred design, I ask him all about how he has married those elements to bring you his latest work
  • His latest book, Remote, Not Distant is a title that says it all! 
    • Gustavo tells us what gems he is sharing in his new book.
    • I tell Gustavo that where I live in Perth, we’ve been lucky not to be too badly affected by the pandemic, remote work for most organisations has been a temporary band aid. I am pro remote work, how do we get the reticent orgs to embrace remote work?
    • From your years of research, what are the cons of remote work? (Very insightful info to manage psychological safety.)
    • What are the unexpected pros of remote work? (There are many!) 
    • I asked Gustavo about all of the open source material he freely provides, that is truly generous – I ask what drove you to be so open with your material?
  • Gustavo shares practical tips for organisations who are iffy about embracing remote work. 
  • Gustavo’s answer to “what is one way you would change the workplace if you had a magic wand!” is fantastic!
