An audiobook for managers leading remote teams and for employees who want to make a difference.
As more companies adopt remote, flexible, or office optional practices, managers and team leaders realise that the transition to a new way of working involves more than making sure that everyone has the right equipment to be able to work from home. It requires a change in mindset and approach.
In this collection of articles gathered together from the Virtual not Distant blog, Pilar Orti and Maya Middlemiss reflect on this transition from a change-management perspective, drawn from their experience of working with leaders of distributed teams.
Each article has been selected to cover one area of remote leadership practice and is followed by a set of leadership reflections to help you identify your next steps. Considering challenges from well-being to technology to communication, this series of articles will empower leaders at all levels to improve their personal practice and their team's performance.

"At thirteen chapters and 100ish pages, you could conceivably finish this book in a couple of hours. I wouldn’t recommend doing so–if read right, this book works almost as a personal coach." (Teresa Douglas, co-author of Secrets of the Remote Workforce.)
