Modern Leadership: Leading Virtual & Remote Teams

We are ALL working virtually. Yes, even if you work from an office building, you’re still working virtually!

Companies have never been more geographically distributed, with offices, teams, partners, & clients spread across the country and globe.

Yet, leaders aren’t equipped with the skills to lead geographically distributed teams, or to work with clients that aren’t co-located. Old-school, in-person management techniques no longer work. I experienced this first-hand as one of the first fully remote marketers for The Clorox Company.

My session will go deep on this leadership challenge. I’ll provide concrete strategies for how to be a great virtual leader so you can drive business results, create an inclusive culture, and keep teams and clients feeling engaged despite the distance.
