Leading Distributed Teams

Daniel Ek, Spotify

Spotify Co-Founder Daniel Ek shares how he manages to lead a growing company with a workforce distributed on multiple continents. “I don’t think the physical experience can be replaced yet,” says Ek, who admits to traveling extensively and sitting out in the open to encourage conversations in his company’s offices. In conversation with KPCB venture capitalist Chi-Hua Chien, Ek also describes the virtual town hall meetings he conducts to maintain transparent communication.
