COVID19 is a very serious health risk that has forced all of us to begin practicing personal hygiene with increased diligence and to be well aware of the 6 ft bubble around us to ensure we are adhering social distancing guidelines. It has changed the way we live, learn, and work. It’s important to follow these new safety measures. At the same time, by making full use of the technology available to us, COVID19 should not result in isolation or alienation. Most of us have worked virtually now and again in the past; working virtually day in and day out is a transition. It is important we intentionally implement best practices now to ensure we stay engaged and connected to our work colleagues and teams.
Many of my conversations with clients recently have revolved around the varied challenges associated with virtual work and leadership. After working with the remote leadership team of one of the country’s largest online institutions for nearly a decade, this is a topic with which I am very familiar and the basis of my dissertation a few years ago. I want to share best practices I have learned along the way with as many people as possible.
Teddy Roosevelt once said “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Research may support this claim too. Our employees need to know that we care. On Friday, March 27th, join me for a free webinar to help virtual leaders connect in a way that is both authentic and effective. For many, this is second nature; but for some it can be a challenge. Space is limited to the first 100 people to register. If this may be beneficial you or your team, please join me on Friday.
