  10. © 2020 Mark Kilby BEST PRACTICES ONLY WORK IN A

    CERTAIN CONTEXT Mindshift that day …
  11. © 2020 Mark Kilby IN THE WRONG CONTEXT “Best Practices”

    can be harmful
  12. © 2020 Mark Kilby ARE TIME ZONES REALLY A PROBLEM?

    (another mind shift coming)
  13. © 2020 Mark Kilby WHAT IF WE CONSIDERED HOURS OF

    OVERLAP?
  14. © 2020 Mark Kilby WHAT IF WE LET THE TEAM

    DECIDE HOURS OF OVERLAP?
  15. None
  16. © 2020 Mark Kilby – 2 mind shifts “Team hours

    over office hours” & “Give distributed teams choice”
  17. © 2020 Mark Kilby QUESTIONS?

  18. © 2020 Mark Kilby • WHAT IS A MIND SHIFT?

    • 3 DISCIPLINES FOR LEADING DISTRIBUTED TEAMS • EXPERIMENTING TO EXPLORE MIND SHIFTS Our path today
  19. © 2020 Mark Kilby 3 KEY MIND SHIFTS FOR DISTRIBUTED

    LEADERS Manage for change through experiments Amplify communication and collaboration Focus on principles over practices These become your “daily disciplines” or “operating system” for distributed leadership

    LEADERS Manage for change through experiments Amplify communication and collaboration Focus on principles over practices These become your “daily disciplines” or “operating system” for distributed leadership
  21. © 2020 Mark Kilby IMAGINE A TEAM WORKING TOGETHER …

    Performance Time Status Quo Change introduced
  22. © 2020 Mark Kilby IMAGINE A TEAM WORKING TOGETHER …

    Performance Time Status Quo Change introduced Change could be: - New process - New team member - New leader - New tools - New conflict - Urgent request - Urgent change in direction - Tool failure - Process failure - Team member out unexpectedly - Leader unavailable - Etc.
  23. © 2020 Mark Kilby Our expectations when we initiate change

    on our teams Our expectations when change is imposed Performance Time Status Quo New Status Expectations Change Time Performance Status Quo Change
  24. © 2020 Mark Kilby Question (please answer with a number

    in chat): With what happened to your team these last few weeks, has change been… 1) Initiated by someone in your organization? 2) Imposed by outside forces? 3) Both? 4) Caused by something else?
  25. © 2020 Mark Kilby How else can you gather answers

    to that last question with tools you have? (keep the answer to yourself at first; type “READY” in chat when you have an idea)
  26. © 2020 Mark Kilby WHAT REALLY HAPPENS (UNDER THE RIGHT

    CONDITIONS)… Performance Time Status Quo New Status Quo Change introduced and challenges assumptions
  27. © 2020 Mark Kilby SMOOTHING IT OUT, WE GET THE

    J-CURVE Time (1) Status Quo/Old (8) New Status Quo (2) Change introduced and challenges assumptions (7) Integrate New Learning Performance (3) Resistance (5) Initial Results / Period of Disruption (6) (first) Transforming Idea (4) Unlearning
  28. © 2020 Mark Kilby – an attentive audience member But

    wait. You said something about “under the right conditions”?
  29. Mind shift: Best way to navigate change is through Experimentation

    (How to experiment is the last part of the presentation)
  30. © 2020 Mark Kilby QUESTIONS?

  31. © 2020 Mark Kilby 3 KEY MIND SHIFTS FOR DISTRIBUTED

    LEADERS Manage for change through experiments Amplify communication and collaboration Focus on principles over practices These become your “daily disciplines” or “operating system” for distributed leadership
  32. © 2020 Mark Kilby THIS IS THE WAY TO WORK

    REMOTELY Some believe…
  33. © 2020 Mark Kilby A TYPICAL DISTRIBUTED COLLABORATION PROBLEM You

    hire great people from all over the world Team sets some good hours of overlap Location 1 people work well together Location 2 & 3 feel isolated (left out of conversations, small tasks, not clear on big picture) Eventually, people in location 2 or 3 either join an all remote team .. Or just join another company
  34. © 2020 Mark Kilby TEAM AFFILIATION OVER LOCATION AFFILIATION (another

    mindshift) Strengthen Weaken
  35. © 2020 Mark Kilby Nebula whole team dispersed

  36. © 2020 Mark Kilby HOW TO BUILD TEAM AFFILIATION Hours

    of Overlap Dedicated Team Backchannel Buddy System & Co-Pilot(s) Know the Whole Person Bring everyone together for big initiative / quarterly planning

  43. © 2020 Mark Kilby HOW TO MANAGE CHANGE THROUGH EXPERIMENTS?

    Hint: Limit the Chaos Time Performance Sometimes known as the “point of chaos”; It will get worse before it gets better as the team wrestles with change Chaos
  44. © 2020 Mark Kilby TOO MUCH CHANGE Can the team

    recover? (1) Status Quo/ Old Way (2) Many/Bigger changes introduced and challenges assumptions Performance Chaos extended. Team may not come out of chaos without huge effort and support Chaos Chaos Time
  45. © 2020 Mark Kilby TOO MANY CHANGES Time (1) Status

    Quo/Old (2) Change introduced Performance (3) Resistance Chaos Results may look more like this if team is not given time to adapt to each change and learn from it.
  46. © 2020 Mark Kilby SET EXPERIMENTS To control the chaos

  47. None
  48. © 2020 Mark Kilby EXPERIMENT WITH, NOT ON (no one

    wants to be a lab rat)
