The remote leader needs a different skillset than the leader operating in one location. We help remote leaders make the transition and build that skillset.

Are you a leader of a globally dispersed team? Most leaders find this more complex than having all team members in one location. It’s a big step to make the transition to managing people who are at work while you are asleep. How do you track their performance? The CEO of a UK based IT company states ‘that distance amplifies leadership ability’ (Neil Gandhi). What he points out is that bad managers become really bad when leading remotely and really good managers can excel when leading in the virtual environment.
The remote leader needs a different skillset than the leader operating in one location. The skillset of the remote leader includes: selecting the right technology for the task and using it smartly, building & mending relationships over distance, creating trust and defusing destructive conflict as well as managing performance remotely. As most dispersed teams are international by nature, cross cultural savvy is often required as well. Our business is to help remote leaders make the transition and build that skillset. We do this completely virtual, in small training groups, to mirror the actual virtual teams that you manage.
