Hot Topic: Remote Work From Home. The one underlying requirement for being able to work remotely is having the personality to make it successful. Not every team member has the mindset and ability to work alone. Even though this is the most important trait necessary for success, it is hardly ever mentioned when we talk working remote in the future.

As leaders, we should do everything possible to help our teams enjoy success. Toward that end, we must understand that there are personalities that will not allow success via the remote path, and there are junior skillsets that require more oversight than remote supervision can provide, and there are creatives that require more personal interaction than remote access permits.

There are a good number of exceptions that are never mentioned in the cheerleading for a remote work environment. We should be fair and realistic in our expectations and not set blanket policies that have no chance of success.
