About this title:

Synopsis: Virtual working – also known as remote working, telecommuting, flexible working, or homeworking – is an important and growing trend in the global employment landscape.  Its popularity has increased due to globalization and outsourcing.  However, unlocking the benefits of virtual work – increased productivity, flexibility, and collaboration across dispersed teams – depends largely on the organizational culture, management, and leadership to support it. Without the knowledge and skills to be effective in leading virtually, many managers are reluctant to embrace it.
 
Virtual Leadership identifies the challenges of virtual work and explains how to develop the facilitative leadership mindset to effectively manage people remotely. It focuses on tried and tested strategies for being a better leader in a virtual working scenario, and directly addresses the common challenges of managing a company of telecommuters using real-life examples from organizations all over the world. Chapters cover why virtual leadership is vital; virtually working with others; using technology; leading virtual meetings; working across cultures, time zones, languages, and generations; and putting leadership into practice.

About the Author: Penny Pullan is Director of Making Projects Work. Her clients include Rolls Royce, UK Government, AstraZeneca, Capital One, Open University, Save the Children, and Christian Aid.  She is the co-editor of Business Analysis and Leadership (Kogan Page).

Book Description Kogan Page Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. 1st ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The future of work is virtual, with dispersed teams, telecommuting, remote working and virtual meetings becoming the norm in many sectors and industries around the world. At its best, virtual working can be productive and creative, tapping into the best people wherever they are and bringing skills and experience together efficiently and at low cost. But it can also lead to isolated and disengaged workers, ineffective communication, and uncoordinated and even counter-productive activity. Virtual Leadership discusses how leading a virtual team in our fast-paced world requires a new set of skills and a facilitative leadership approach. Virtual Leadership provides practical strategies, tools and solutions for the key issues involved in managing at a distance. How can I provide leadership, motivation and vision through virtual channels? How do I make virtual meetings effective, engaging and productive, and ensure actions are followed through? How do I create engaged and cohesive teams across distance, cultures and languages? How do I stop virtual team members silently checking out, distracted by local challenges and offline issues? With diverse case studies and examples, this is the essential guide to making a difference as a leader of virtual work. Seller Inventory # AA99780749475963
