Amir Salihefendić: Asynchronous Communication Means Better Work

The switch to remote work in 2020 was an opportunity to re-evaluate the company OS and make changes for the better. However, many employees spent more time in Zoom meetings than office meetings, with significant impacts on well-being and productivity.

Amir discusses why he believes the future of work, whether remote, hybrid, or back to the office, requires a new way of asynchronous communication. Imagine the end of being constantly on and sitting in pointless meetings.

Asynchronous work is the freedom to collaborate on our timelines, not everyone else’s. It’s the power to protect our best hours for focus and flow. It’s the peace of unplugging, knowing we can pick up where we left off. It’s a world where work can happen anywhere, anytime (but not all the time), where we measure productivity not by hours but by outcomes.

He shares some key benefits of this approach and how companies can use async communication for a team of 10, 100, 1,000, and beyond. He also considers the limits and why synchronous communication, whether online or in-person, is essential in building a solid culture and a motivated team.
