Humble Leadership and the Power of Remote Teams with Andreas Ditsche





In this week’s episode of The High-Performance CEO Podcast, joining us is Andreas Ditsche - Investor, Business Angel, Professor and CEO of iGaming. Andreas discusses the benefits of remote work and the importance of intentional planning for team collaboration and social interaction. He also highlights the significance of employee development, approachable CEOs, and the utilization of chatbots and artificial intelligence.

Remote working can be a great opportunity for businesses to save costs and increase productivity, employee satisfaction, and attract talent. To create connection and fellowship amongst the virtual team, businesses should incorporate check-in calls, virtual social sessions, and other tools for better communication.

And with AI making it possible to build an empire with a few hundred people, it is important to look outside of one’s comfort zone and take advantage of the challenges presented with the help of AI.

Why is remote working more beneficial than working onsite?

  1. Increased productivity: According to a study by Airtasker, remote workers are 13% more productive than their office counterparts. This could be due to the lack of distractions and interruptions that are common in an office setting.

  2. Better work-life balance: Remote workers have more control over their schedules and can better balance their personal and professional lives. This can lead to reduced stress and improved overall well-being.

  3. Reduced commute time and costs: Commuting to and from work can be time-consuming and expensive. Remote workers save time and money by not having to commute, which can result in improved work-life balance and increased productivity.

  4. Access to a larger talent pool: Companies that allow remote work can hire the best talent from anywhere in the world rather than being limited to candidates who live within commuting distance of the office. This can result in a more diverse and skilled workforce.

  5. Reduced overhead costs: Companies can save money on rent, utilities, and other office-related expenses by allowing employees to work remotely.

  6. Environmental benefits: Remote work can have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the number of cars on the road and decreasing carbon emissions.
