Running Metrics-Driven Remote Teams with Liam Martin

Luis Magalhaes published on

How can you figure out the best way to be metrics-driven when performance happens over several different disciplines? How to develop disciplined focus without stifling creativity? And what are the best ways for a remote leader to build a peer group online?   TimeDoctor’s co-founder Liam Martin tells us all about his strategy. 

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the top remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

Today’s guest is Liam Martin, the co-founder and CMO of TimeDoctor.com, Staff.com and co-organizer of RunningRemote.com - the largest conference on building remote teams. After working with remote employees for over 10 years, Liam regularly speaks about how to build and manage top-performing, metric-driven remote teams.

In this episode, we talk with Liam about a broad variety of topics. He lays out how focusing on metrics is a boon for productivity, and shares his thoughts on how to measure creativity and stay disciplined as an idea person. But for the aspiring leaders out there, it will also be of great interest to learn how he goes about building peer groups online, and why it’s a bad idea to pay for masterminds - at least initially.
