Knowledge, Learning, Community

I think that this is a really good idea - an online resource in which the two authors "openly share our approach to leading a virtual team." It's just the sort of thing you want to see modeled and demonstrated. That said, this post is almost unreadable. Most of the problem is presentation: the conversation back and forth (which, let's be honest, wanders) is presented in big huge blocks of text, a presentation style that has never worked online. Did they forget how to use paragraphs? Now to be fair, they've been doing this since 2018, so maybe it's just me being a grumpy old man with bad eyesight. But I think they know better - look at this post, which is a model of white space and illustration.
