Maximizing productivity and innovation in the virtual workforce is one of the top priorities for leadership around the world. Whether your employees are separated by thousands of miles or work in offices or cubicles on the same floor, if they’re using electronic devices for most of their work and communications then they’re virtual workers.

When virtual distance is low among team members, innovation jumps 90 percent, customer satisfaction soars by over 80 percent and on-time, on-budget project delivery can increase by as much as 60 percent, saving the company millions.

While virtual work has brought many benefits, it has also created a host of “human” challenges. Coordinating team efforts and building strong relationships can be difficult. The good news is that virtual workforce performance can be dramatically improved by using Virtual Distance leadership principles. In this webinar presentation, Dr. Karen Sobel Lojeski shatters the myths about virtual work that lead organizations astray. Join Karen to:

  • Discover how to quantitatively track and measure Virtual Distance
  • Understand how to identify and overcome issues related to Virtual Distance
