Episode 55 - Emotion at Work in Remote Leadership

COVID-19 has changed the landscape of work for many people and organisations. Shifting processes and leading teams in a hybrid way and/or a remote way has brought with it a myriad of challenges and considerations for people professionals and those in leadership positions.


In this episode, Phil is joined by Sumit Gupta who is a leadership coach and entrepreneur. Phil and Sumit discuss the role of creating a trustworthy culture through effective leadership, particularly in a hybrid and remote setting, which allows individuals to feel psychologically safe and can help them eliminate the need to wear a mask at work and conceal their true emotion(s).


The three attributes Sumit suggests help create this environment in a hybrid/remote setting, and those which are subsequently covered throughout this conversation, are:


  1. Approach this style of leadership as new or different as opposed to difficult or challenging
  2. Lead with trust
  3. Ask questions with curiosity


All these components are discussed in detail throughout the episode before Sumit and Phil look to some of the potential myths which sit around leadership.
