3rd August 2016 - Virtual LeadershipPractical Strategies for Getting the Best Out of Virtual Work and Virtual Teams

What does virtual leadership mean?

“Virtual leadership is much more than merely using the appropriate communications. It is about being able to engage people from afar to produce results together. It builds on a shared vision of the future to help people to get things done together.”

Virtual Leadership provides practical strategies, tools and solutions for the key issues involved in managing at a distance. With diverse case studies and examples, this is the essential guide to making a difference as a leader of virtual work.

  • How can I provide leadership, motivation and vision through virtual channels?
  • How do I make virtual meetings effective, engaging and productive, and ensure actions are followed through?
  • How do I create engaged and cohesive teams across distance, cultures and languages?
  • How do I stop virtual team members silently checking out, distracted by local challenges and offline issues?

Graeme Codrington, TomorrowToday, Futurist and expert on the future of work, praises Virtual Leadershipcalling it “a comprehensive handbook for anyone who spends time in the virtual world of work. It is indispensable and required reading for leaders in the modern workplace”.

Further commendation from Pete Bennett, Founder, Buzz Conferencing, UK, “Penny has done a magnificent job of covering every single element which you need to master. I've been managing virtual teams for over 20 years and thought I knew it all. I didn't. And you won't either until you have read this book.”.
