Question

How do you define good leadership in general but also more specifically for a distributed team?

Tough question. There are lots of skills that are important for being a good leader.

Perhaps the most important one is good storytelling. Leaders have to be able to inspire people to a bigger purpose. Tons of companies can offer a paycheck. What can you offer beyond that?

I don't think the answer changes for remote teams either, but I do think if you're a bad leader it's going to be even harder in a remote environment. There's just less room for error with distributed teams.
