By Erik Korsvik Østergaard, 15. December 2021.
Google has tons of data, gathered over many years of research on collaboration, leadership, and productivity. Their Re:Work website has surfaced and shared many nuggets, for example the need for psychological safety in high performing teams. In 2017, Project Oxygen has identified six qualities of the modern leader.
Yes, the article is 4 years old, but it underlines the need for personal work when it comes to the task of transforming to the modern leader. Also, that it’s hard to do alone. Always team up, as we keep saying to our customers.
The six elements resonate very strongly with the need for modern leadership in a remote setting too.
