72. Liam Martin – Time Doctor - Transitioning to an Asynchronous, Remote Workforce

35 minutes

Liam Martin is the co-founder and CMO of Time Doctor and Staff.com, one of the most popular time tracking and productivity software platforms for remote teams. He’s also a co-organizer of Running Remote, the world’s largest conference on building and scaling remote teams.

Martin and his team enable companies to manage remote workers just as if they were in the same office, maintaining a high level of productivity. His thought leadership on remote work has been printed by top publications, including Forbes, The Huffington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.

In this episode, Liam breaks down the benefits of transitioning to a remote workforce, why charismatic leaders are not required within remote-first companies, and why you should be working asynchronously in 2022 and beyond.

He also shares his expert insights on how to achieve deep work to solve difficult problems as a remote team and why remote work is the most important thing you can do to make employees happy.

Additionally, Martin describes what an asynchronous team meeting should look like and why they’re more efficient and productive than traditional, in-house team meetings. He then shares a sneak peek into his new book, Running Remote: Master the Lessons from the World’s Most Successful Remote-Work Pioneers.
