Leading a Virtual Team: How to Keep Remote Workers Engaged, Motivated and Productive

Duration: 60 minutes

Like it or not, the “virtual workforce” is here to stay. Empowered by technology, new social norms and a “knowledge economy,” more and more employees are demanding flexibility when it comes to when and from where they work.

If you’re not already living it, you can imagine the leadership challenges this new reality creates. Workers distracted by issues at home lose focus and productivity crumbles. Communication barriers between remote and onsite workers jeopardize critical deadlines.


Informal idea exchange disappears and teamwork suffers because “offsiters” rarely interact with the team. Technology glitches temporarily disconnect remote locations and work comes to a grinding halt.

To learn how to overcome these challenges and more, join us for a 60-minute webinar with nationally recognized management expert Dr. Susan Strauss. She’ll discuss what managers need to do become more effective leaders in the 21st century.

  • Four essentials for virtual teamwork
