If you aren't already embracing the movement of asynchronous management, it's time to catch up and welcome you to a new world.
LEON and Notion believe that an all-remote workforce is the future of work. And one of the first steps to embracing this new world includes understanding and embracing the value that asynchronous management has for improving happiness and decreasing the risk of employee burnout.
Asynchronous management super-powers managers to lead from an environment where they can effectively communicate to their teams in a scalable and respectful way. In addition, it gives managers the ability to operate across time zones and countries while still profoundly understanding the readiness of their teams to perform.
Gone are the days of "best practice" when leading inclusive, badass teams.
We have now stepped into a world where calendars and schedules (the old world of synchronicity) no longer dictate how a group of people or a company scales. Instead, we now live in an environment of asynchronous management.
As a result, your communication, schedules, one-on-one, and even well-being and performance management (thanks to LEON) are done respectfully and inclusively to our diverse and unique employee population.
We have learned a ton in this almost post-Covid world. From better understanding mental health to now seeing the value of asynchronous management, protecting our people from employee burnout has become a growth lever for some of today's fastest-growing companies.
In this new business of "protection," it's essential to have a framework to understand when and how to protect your people best.
Hence the reason for the Notion-inspired Playbook called: Become a memo and video culture.
As we move to more distributed and remote teams, companies such as Notion have found that the best way to collaborate on ideas is to write out and video your ideas in long form, then send the links to relevant team members to add their thoughts.
Using asynchronous tools to connect as a team, such as Slack for communications, Loom for video, and Notion for documentation can do wonders in allowing your team time to recover and much need autonomy.
Use this Notion Playbook to decrease cognitive load, stress, and strain caused by too many meetings and too much off-hour communication.
And remember, in this new world, embracing Playbooks such as this one may give you superpowers. So watch out there, Clark Kent.
When it comes to an understanding of when to implement this Notion Playbook, there is one question you must ask yourself.
In the context of Notion, this Playbook allows managers to support their employees better, allowing more freedom and autonomy, right when a stressed-out team may need it.
In the world of LEON, this Playbook would be considered a Support Playbook.
