C-suite executives offer advice on working remotely during pandemic - C-level execs in industries from biotech and telecom to accounting and marketing are making sure their employees have the proper resources to carry on. Here's what they're doing:

  • Todd Greene, CEO and founder of PubNub, "Ultimately, transparency is paramount"
  • Nicole Sahin, CEO and founder of Globalization Partners - "You have to be realistic about what's in front of them. You have to be clear-minded and focus on the task at hand”
  • Paul Rubenstein, Chief People Officer of Visier - "Our mantra was 'prepare for a month of office closure the same way you would prepare for a day’”
  • Jeff Foley, COO of Propeller, "We have some team members who start their days early (and) some who set up an on-off schedule with partners, so each parent has half a day dedicated to work and the other half dedicated to kids"
  • Alexander Hudek., CTO and co-founder of Kira Systems, “Our purely remote workers are in some ways more engaged in helping everyone else adjust by sharing tips and rituals that work for them, including virtual mixers and coffee chats, the sharing of personal photos, and all kinds of hijinks on Zoom”
  • Paige Arnof-Fenn, the CEO at Mavens & Moguls, "Online meetings and webinars are a smart and productive way companies can continue to have conversations that educate and inform, build relationships and move forward during this crisis period”

4 Behaviors That Help Leaders Manage a Crisis - The roles and responsibilities of business leaders have dramatically changed in the past few weeks. Once focused on fostering innovation, driving revenue, and gaining market share, they now are navigating health and safety concerns, working remotely, and supporting their families and employees. Duding a crisis, leaders need to cultivate these four behaviors:

  1. - Decide with speed over precision
  2. - Adapt boldly
  3. - Reliably deliver
  4. - Engage for impact

The Right Way to Keep Your Remote Team Accountable - Here are four of the most common mistakes newly remote leaders make, and what you should do instead:

  1. Demanding high productivity - Instead, identify the highest priority tasks right now and relax the rest
  2. Assuming this is temporary - That's why you should "Get good at working remotely"
  3. Disallowing use of any non-approved tools - Create an expedited process for adopting new tools
  4. Dictating hours and response times - Instead, meet with your team every day via phone or videoconference to discuss what they've accomplished, what they're planning to do that day, and where they need help

3 Tips to Avoid WFH Burnout - The lines between work and non-work are blurring in new and unusual ways, and many employees who are working remotely for the first time are likely to struggle to preserve healthy boundaries between their professional and personal lives. Here are some recommendations:

  • Maintain physical and social boundaries
  • Maintain temporal boundaries as much as possible
  • Focus on your most important work

15 Steps to Take Before Your Next Video Call - Here are the exact steps you need to conquer your video calls the next time you get on camera:

  1. Get “The Right” Gear
  2. Back Up (Frame Your Shot)
  3. Lights, Camera, Action
  4. Focus on Substance, Not Appearance
  5. A number fo social tips, including Avoiding Video Awkwardness, Look at the Dot, Smile, and Start With Your Happy Voice

Contract risk management: Focus on these 6 areas - Inspecting vendor contracts for risk is increasingly important as CIOs scramble to stay nimble in a volatile economy. Here's how to protect your interests...

  1. Price transparency
  2. Renewal rates
  3. Price holds
  4. Control rights
  5. License rights
  6. Compliance and audit clauses

Interview: Cyber Resilience - 6:00-6:45PM


This week, we welcome Dick Clarke to discuss his new book, The Fifth Domain, and the need for cyber resilience, especially these days. Significant risks are still manageable, but what are the concrete steps that can be taken toward cyber resilience. In conversations with leading scientists, government officials, and corporate executives, the prevailing consensus is that we are capable of defending ourselves as individuals, as organizations, and as a nation, but that our cyber security remains contingent on the a consensus that it is worth prioritizing.
