4:43 – Jason talks with author Chris Dyer about what remote work means now after the pandemic and the lessons learned from employers as workers want to work from home now and top talent is starting to leave the workplace in favor of more at-home options.

9:03 – Jason and Chris talk about the best things shared with remote work across all different companies including the marine corp and how they were a model for these times.
12:11 – Covid has been a time to think and was a time for deep thinking. Chris shares how he was able to share how he could complete his entire workday in 3 hours when working from home due to the limited distractions compared to the office. The best talent is ready to leave, employers will have to ask, am I willing to lose 30% of my top performers and willing to replace them vs sticking to their old values that don’t quite fit this new paradigm.
28:31 – Can you leave early? It actually causes workers to work harder, smarter, and more effective. A discussion about time management occurs in the workplace.
32:00 – How much time are you willing to invest in your work? In your projects? What are your priorities? Each investment in time makes us more efficient to be sure to not waste time and fill them with meetings that are not needed. There is a big problem with too many meetings in the workplace.
Remember, the best leaders, teams, & cultures stimulate progress by recalibrating their thermostat together.
ABOUT THE THERMOSTAT
Conversations and micro-thoughts to engage your mind and heart.
A thermostat is proactive. It sets the temperature in a room. Controls the temperature. Regulates the temperature. But in today’s distracted, fast-paced and digital world, it’s easy for individuals and organizations to act more like thermometers, slipping into reactionary thinking, becoming scattered and inconsistent. The most compelling leaders, teams, organizations, families or collection of humans of any kind operate in thermostat mode. They calibrate their mind and heart to set the temperature for the vision and culture they want to create. Jason Barger, globally celebrated author, keynote speaker, and founder of Step Back Leadership Consulting, is the host of The Thermostat, a podcast journey to discover authentic leadership, create compelling cultures and find clarity of mission, vision, and values.
