    Remote Not Distant: Design a Company Culture That Will Help You Thrive in a Hybrid Workplace
    by Gustavo Razzetti

    Hybrid and remote work is here to stay. What will it take for your company to succeed in the new normal? While most companies have struggled to keep their culture alive remotely since the pandemic, some are successfully riding the waves of the future. To the outside observer, it seems like they were lucky. In reality, building a workplace culture strong enough to thrive at a distance doesn't happen by chance, but by design. In this practical, meticulously researched book, top culture thought leader Gustavo Razzetti provides a roadmap to understand, adapt to, and succeed in a hybrid workplace. Razzetti has spent years investigating the leading edges of this revolution, including Amazon, Slack, GitLab, Volvo, and Microsoft, to name just a few. The lessons are simple yet stunning. Through insights, real-life examples (both successes and failures), exercises, and experiments, Razzetti will guide you through today's rapidly changing workplace to improve collaboration whether your team members work from home, the office, or both. Remote, Not Distant provides actionable tools for senior leaders, managers, and team members. It addresses the multiple areas of culture, from keeping your team engaged and improving remote communication to managing conflict, facilitating courageous conversations, and unleashing innovation.
