Virtual Leadership offers practical strategies and proven methods for getting the best out of hybrid or remote work and teams. This useful guide explains how to create cohesive teams, collaborate creatively and effectively, connect across barriers of distance and culture, building on the foundation of a leader's own mindset and approach. It provides clear guidance on how to run engaging and effective meetings, as well as how to encourage high performance from motivated and happy team members in between meetings.
Fully revised throughout, this second edition:
- Provides a new chapter entirely focused on hybrid ways of working;

- Gives ideas and practical tips on how to overcome the many complications of virtual work;
- Presents diverse case studies and examples from business, education, community, healthcare and beyond, sparking insights that can be adapted to other environments.
