The most popular topic I have been asked to consult and train on is about leading remote teams. This is not a new subject area, as distributed teams have been the norm in most organisations for many years. Several books have also been written on leading remote teams, so why this book on leading remote teams?
The feedback I’ve had from people attending my courses is that they have read books on remote team management and leadership, but they have found very few practical take-aways that they could implement immediately. Most of these people are senior managers who don’t have time to devise their own tools and templates. They want tangible, practical guidance to help them in their roles. That is what this book provides. A toolkit to help you manage and lead remote teams effectively.
This book provides an essential and up-to-date toolkit for remote managers and team leaders. It is packed with free-to-use tools and templates that remote leaders use to successfully lead their distributed teams. Purchase this book if you need tangible, practical guidance to help you in your role as a distance manager.
