We're LIVE in 10 minutes with @dessalen to learn where DE&I fits into addressing a global pandemic, strategies for DE&I in the virtual workplace, and how to have difficult conversations with effective outcomes. Join us! #TeVirtualEvents #DEI
What will we be talking about today? @dessalen also talks a lot about ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard. What do these have to do with #diversity? Stay tuned for the replay to find out! #TeVirtualEvents #DEI
What is the best way to solve a problem? Need as many varied ways of thinking for the most successful outcome. Post pandemic, reopening, closing, second wave - this is new to all of us. ONE group of people will not have the best ideas. We need to be #crowdsourcing ideas. #TeVE

1/ Unpopular opinion...the San Francisco Bay Area is incredibly resilient, any “exodus” will be temporary (1-2 years) and overblown, rents and home prices will be at pre-pandemic highs in 3 years, so buy low! A thread…
2/ I moved to the Bay Area to start @ApartmentList a decade ago, and I still recommend the move to aspiring entrepreneurs, technologists and adventurers. Why? The people are amazing. Handshakes may go away but serendipity will not.
3/ Face-to-face work and chance encounters will keep sparking new ideas. While tech fuels ease of distance, we’re still betting on hubs. Seeing this in both hiring and layoff data (and, of course, #rentertrends).

How I developed a project that teams from Fortune 500 companies use.

A thread:

Mind my own business on social media until I find something interesting. This time it was @Pinterest employee Makeathon. I was researching hackathon related events for my podcast @hackathonent

I assumed there was a problem:

Remote teams struggle to find activities to engage.

This assumption was also triggered by my experience as an architecture student and what I thought the built environment meant for team dynamics.

How do teams stay close when remote

Here's how to ace remote brainstorming & whiteboarding 😎

Thread 👇

To read the full newsletter 👉…

#remotework #whiteboard #brainstorm
Anti-Pattern - Video call with a physical whiteboard

1. Tough to make out what's written + restricted movement.

2. No element of collaboration.

You're better off not using a whiteboard altogether than using a physical one on video 🎥
Getting your setup right

A touch interface is a must if you are planning on scribbling and drawing on a remote whiteboard. A tablet with a pencil connected to your monitor is ideal.

- Mostly worked remotely, except for a couple stints
- Lead engineer for a mid-sized replatforming project
- His work shuffles between architectural positions as well as hands-on coding 🔀

We're live with @dessalen and we would like for you to join the conversation about #diversity and inclusion. We will be talking about:
Diversity as a business imperative,
Outdated thinking about remote work & diversity,
Remote utopia and
Enabling remote inclusion
We have problems as an organization if we only have one way to solve our problems, that's all we will be thinking about. We need to have MORE diverse solutions.

#Diversity has more than one dimension.

We're live with @EricTennison_TE and Paul Daniels (from @Milford_Schools) to talk about "Leadership Transitions During Times of Crisis". Join us here: #TeVirtualEvents #TeVE #Leadership
@Milford_Schools reached out to their teachers to #keeppeopleconnected virtually using #Thoughtexchange. Their responses were empathetic and thoughtful, grateful to share their thoughts collectively 💜 #TeVirtualEvents #TeVE
They had built trust previously (bonds and portrait of an "Eagle") which helped tremendously during this time of crisis. Building that trust BEFORE the crisis becomes a valuable foundation for #leadership practices when the crisis arrives. #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents

We all have successfully overcome the first impediment of ensuring business continuity-by moving all operations to remote work. However, there are many challenges of working remotely— how does one ensure that remote work doesn’t affect team communication or committed deliverable? Image
Would working from home imply always being “available”? How to draw a line between work and family time? How to keep the team motivated about their work? How to ensure that team concerns are resolved quickly? We've touched upon a few of these challenges..
and shared a few inputs on how we're tackling them! Give it a read..? #teamwork #remotework #pandemicresponse #workremotely #workfromhome #crisismanagement…

Almost 10 years ago, I flipped off a skateboard and landed on my head on concrete. I ended up with a concussion and completely lost my ability to focus. Here's a thread on how I went from zero concentration to the most disciplined person most people know:
Before that point, focus was effortless to me. Like a lightswitch that I could turn on and off. I centered my identity on being bright and a fast learner. All these skills turned out came from my concentration skills. After the concussion, I ended up with a severe identity crisis
I couldn't read through a paragraph without my mind shutting down. I used to finish a book in a day, no issues, but now I fell behind in coursework that was previously a breeze and I couldn't participate in any of my previous hobbies due to the focus they required.

We will hear this from many companies in the coming year and beyond.

As companies transition from early reluctance and lack-of-productivity, they will be forced to adapt. Those adaptations will cause them to realize that distributed work is both possible and can be productive.

Over the past few weeks of #covid19 confinement - or #shelteringinplace as they say in the US - we have been able to witness (and sometimes support) a number of organizations in their move to #remotework
We believe our experience with implementing #NWoW - #futureofwork in North America - is a helpful lens in seeing both the challenges and changes organizations face when switching to #remotework... some observations:
Organizations that are technologically well-equipped for #remotework before #covid19 were obviously advantaged, but... it was much easier for organizations that were already culturally fit/ready! #orgculture

Do you manage teams that are now working remotely? My 8 top tips in this thread can be returned to time and again to check you’re covering all the right bases...#remotework #virtualnotdistant #leadership @CIPD 1/9
1. Get to know your team members.

Home situations change day to day, week by week.

Juggling childcare? Live with a key worker? How’s their motivation? Do they know your expectations? Ask create opportunities for 1:1 check-ins.Ask “how are you?” Ask it twice. And mean it.
2. Set clear expectations for communication

How will they know who to ask? Ensure that the same people aren’t always the ones answering. Set up buddies. How will they know if/when people are free? Use tech to show “available/busy/do not disturb”

🚨 Announcement: I just took over leading product for Microsoft Whiteboard on iOS.

I want to give everyone a quick update on where things are in full transparency because I believe in being customer connected and want your feedback!
Due to #COVID19 the need for #remotework and #remoteteaching tools has obviously skyrocketed, including a digital Whiteboard.

As a result, Microsoft Whiteboard iOS went from ~150 in Apple's @AppStore to #13 in US Productivity apps for iPad last weekend.
I have personally read every app review, tweet, @UserVoice comment and email we've had for Whiteboard iOS in the last 6+ months and it is clear the app needs some ❤ in the stability & bug area.

I've also become a DAILY user of the iOS app and experience this first-hand.

Many of the long standing societal rules were re-written at times of crisis. We are undergoing one of the biggest crisis of our generation. Wonder what rules will be re-written in the post COVID world. Trying to predict few changes in the new world

Thread 1/n
AI and Digital transformation will lead the way in the post Covid world as people will finally wake up to the potential of technology in optimizing their respective businesses.
#COVID #coronovirusindia #economy #recession #IndianEconomy #startups
The de facto delivery of education will change to online mediums now that the education institutes will start seeing the potential of online education delivery. Low impact in K12, high impact in higher education.

PSA: To all those @zoom_us users out there in this #RemoteLearning and #RemoteWork world. If all you are going to use Zoom for is a way to broadcast you talking (I am looking at you professors), record it with something else and send it to your constituents. (1/2)
No sense in using video conferencing if you are not conferencing. Save the resources for those that need to interact with their students/colleagues. (2/2)
I recommend just a screen record or @useloom
