The Long-Distance Leader - The Long-Distance Leader

About the Book

The principles of leadership haven’t changed—they are principles. They're timeless and true regardless of where you—and your people—are.

What has changed is that people are working in different places and perhaps at different times.

There has been a fundamental change in the way people work together, and how leaders communicate. We can’t rely on real-time, face-to-face communication when people work from home or the other side of the world. Those changes profoundly impact how leaders think, act and communicate.

In The Long-Distance Leader, you’ll learn the subtle but often painfully different nuances of leading in this new world of virtual work. You’ll also learn how to apply the timeless principles of leadership to help you have better relationships, get more done and have more success. The principles of leadership haven’t changed. They’re timeless and true regardless of where you—and your people—are.

As many as a third of leaders lead at a distance, and the number is rising.

If you lead a team that is remote part or all the time, whether they are across town or around the world, you are a Long-Distance Leader. And if that isn’t you today, odds are high that it may be sooner than later.

The trend towards people not being “at work” is growing and evolving; and when you aren’t with your team face-to-face all the time, how you lead them changes, whether you have thought about it or not.

The Long-Distance Leader will give new insights and specific actions you can take to lead remotely more effectively and with greater confidence. Download a sample chapter and get started today!
