Webinar: Working Remotely: Effectively Working With and Managing Remote Workers

In today’s work environment we often can find ourselves collaborating with distributed teams across time zones, cultures and languages. Yes, technology has changed the way we work but we are still human and it’s so easy to miscommunicate when you’re not physically together.  

You miss body language signals, bonding opportunities, project timing and sometimes the big picture gets lost. Mark Squeglia, is a seasoned expert in managing remote teams at GE and understands all the complexities of working remotely. 

Maybe your staff is distributed across the globe or you work on a project with a company that is not local.  Perhaps you are considering an opportunity to do virtual work. the goal is the same…you need to have successful outcomes.  Mark will share stories and a framework on how the best teams work remotely and get things done.

We asked Mark: "Based on your personal experience what were the characteristics of a bad manager / team leader?"
Mark’s response: "Infrequent & poor communications, my worst manager was the one whose office was right next to mine! So not a function of their location."
