The discussion with Sebastian Schieke continues as we look at building a high-performance remote team. Not surprisingly, there are similar concerns as with traditional work teams. The team must be able to work together, set common goals, and find fulfillment for the members. None of this is new in leadership or team-building. However, it seems to leave people stumped when it shifts to a remote team.

Building a High-Performance Remote Team – Start With People

A team is always going to be made up of people. Thus, treating people right and motivating them is always a good step toward building a high-performance team. While there are many approaches, the best teams are able to overcome differences, feel heard, and see the leadership as empathetic in essential ways. Motivators and similar personality traits are not just a “touchy-feely” approach to team performance. They are insights into how to get the various members working together.

A Little Background

Sebastian grew up in the communist part of Germany, where entrepreneurship did not exist. Since moving to west Germany at 14, he has always wanted to run the show. He never had a “real job.” His journey brought him to where he is currently: An Entrepreneur, CEO Mentor+Coach, Business Angel, and Investor. He founded, ran, and grew multiple 7-figure companies. Likewise, he invests in startups, mentor and coach CEOs, and help them to move their teams forward. He has also gone through challenging times. He knows what it takes and how to get there, taught by business and life and not only through seminars and books.

There are two facts we have to accept: Change and Failure. Change is the only constant in today’s world. We have to embrace it. Failure is inevitable; sooner or later, we all fail. Resilient leaders are not afraid of change; for them, change is fuel. Resilient leaders are not afraid to fail because failure means learning. The only difference is how fast we get up when life gets us down. Our passion is to help you increase your resilience.

If you run a growing organization, you know that the performance of your teams is key to your current and future success. The team members need the right mindset, openness, agility, and up-to-date skills and should live and breathe the philosophy of constant and never-ending improvement.

Developing resilient leadership and high-performance teams is no magic but focused and ongoing work. We use data and proven personality assessments to help you and us understand who you and your team members are. We can measure behavioral, motivational, and thinking tendencies and many more. It is like an MRI – you will be surprised.
