About This Episode

Strong relationships are one of the keys to building a great company culture, especially for remote or hybrid teams. In this episode, BELAY CFO Lisa Zeeveld shares a few key hacks for leading with empathy, setting clear expectations, and creating a culture where feedback is encouraged. 

Whether you’re new to working with hybrid teams or you’re an experienced leader who just wants to learn more, this episode is full of practical advice and insight.

1. Most people want to do a good job, but they may struggle when expectations are unclear.

By using task management software, setting KPIs, and documenting expectations for meeting and email etiquette, you can set your team up to perform at the highest level.

2. Great leaders are willing to be a launchpad.

When you’re truly invested in helping your team members succeed, you can celebrate if they choose to take the skills they learned from you and move on to something new.

3. Feedback is a two-way street.

One of the best ways to keep growing as a leader is to build a culture where your team is able to provide and receive frequent feedback.
