As innovations in technology continue to amaze and enable, more and more organizations are embracing the undeniable benefits of moving from a traditional workplace setting to a virtual one. The advantages of tapping into the global talent pool while offsetting expenses just make sense.
However, leading a geographically dispersed team is radically different from traditional face-to-face leadership and comes with a whole set of new challenges to overcome. How are you supposed to manage accountability, encourage collaboration and build trust with team members who are not in front of you?
Thankfully there is help. During a free webinar hosted by HRDQ-U on August 27th, Rick Lepsinger, President of OnPoint Consulting and virtual team expert, will be sharing his expertise to help you learn how to better manage from a distance.
