I disagree with this POV from Suzy Welch. Instead of telling people they can’t be a leader if they aren’t "inside the building", I believe we should teach people the skills to lead, inspire, and build trust across distance - and that is just what I am doing.

In reality it is not that simple to say that to be a leader you must be “inside the building”. This POV ignores the fact that many executive teams (i.e. the top leaders in a company) are no longer co-located all in the same building. And it doesn’t address the many remote-first companies led by remote leaders. It is a requirement in today’s world of work to be able to lead people that aren’t in the same building as you.

I have been a LEADER while working fully remotely. I led a large team responsible for $250M worth of business and sat on the leadership team for $1B business unit within The Clorox Company. My team and I found creative ways to build those layers of trust that Suzy referred to. Yes, it is important to get together physically to help build those relationships, but it doesn’t mean you must be co-located. I also found creative ways to influence the most senior leaders of the company from a distance on an ongoing basis.
