What has changed is that people are working in different places and perhaps at different times.

There has been a fundamental change in the way people work together, and how leaders communicate. We can't rely on real-time, face-to-face communication when people work from home or the other side of the world. Those changes profoundly impact how leaders think, act and communicate.

In The Long-Distance Leader, you'll learn the subtle but often painfully different nuances of leading in this new world of virtual work. You'll also learn how to apply the timeless principles of leadership to help you have better relationships, get more done and have more success.
