In this video about remote teams, Lara Owen ties together environment, emotional intelligence, remote management, and the sense of belonging.
She uses classic leadership theories at GitHub to encourage diversity, empathy, and plus to help remote employees fight impostor syndrome, start out on the right foot and stay connected. Fantastic!

Jacki Zehner makes some excellent points about how every contact we make in business counts, no matter how small it may seem at the moment. I like how she states:
“As a professional, you need to care about every single contact point you have with every single person, both internal and external.”
