It’s undeniable that we’re entering a new era of remote work. While many leaders seek to run business as usual, why settle for the usual when remote teams allow us to work even better? The research shows that employees are more productive and engaged when they have the freedom to work from anywhere.
Which means leaders need the skills to lead from anywhere.
Join top business thought leader David Burkus as he reviews the key inflection points and challenges that managers face from transitioning to remote or “from anywhere” work to communicating effectively and quickly, managing performance, keeping the team engaged, and even helping them strike the right balance between work and life. He will cover:
- How to build bonds from afar and increase engagement remotely
- How to establish effective communication norms and run virtual team meetings
- How to help your team limit distractions and avoid burnout when working from home.
Burkus challenges the traditional and widely accepted principles of business management and proves that they are outdated, outmoded, or simply don’t work. And he argues for what does work. Covering traditional management topics such as interviews, annual reviews and customer-first policies, Burkus reveals how what was once considered “best practice” now requires management re-thinking. In his 2018 book, Friend of a Friend, Burkus draws on research into the science of human behaviour to propose new perspectives on how to grow networks and build key connections.
