Remote teams deserve inspiring leadership, too

Today’s workforce is increasingly working from home and other remote locations, with teams located across countries and time zones around the globe. As a result, managers need help to connect with their people through time lags and technology interfaces. It’s the new normal. And it comes with a new set of benefits and challenges.

Managing in this environment differs from working together in the same physical space. It can be challenging to understand what people need and even harder to build rapport and trust over long distances. Leading Hybrid Teams teaches the skills managers need to increase the effectiveness and productivity of their remote staff.
