Our worklives are getting more virtual by the minute. On the one hand, this leads to benefits such as cost-savings on real estate and travel, convenience through, fewer and easier employee commutes, greater reach to more customers, and the ability to create agile “designer” work teams across geographical distances. At the same time it requires massive adjustment to our traditional ways of working, calling for new skills on the part of leaders, followers, and those who advise them.
Come share, learn and practice skills in helping virtual leaders with someone who (literally) wrote the book on virtual leadership.
