Workplaceless Launches Interactive Remote Leadership Workshops
On Thursday, June 28, leaders of remote teams met via Zoom video conference to assess and develop their remote leadership skills in three core areas: intention, trust, and communication. Attendees were from distributed companies FlexJobs, DataStax, Student Loan Hero, and Rebel + Connect.
The workshop was the first in the Leadplaceless remote leadership series, an intensive training program designed to help new managers of remote teams address the unique challenges of leading distributed teams.Through discussions, case study analyses, collaborative activities, and assessments, participants recognized the skills, behaviors, and attitudes of remote leaders, identified their own strengths and weaknesses, and created a plan to further develop their skills.
The next workshop in the series will be on Thursday, July 26, from 3 to 5 pm EDT. Any leader of a distributed team is welcome to attend, regardless of whether or not they attended the first workshop. For more information, visit www.workplaceless.com/p/leadplaceless
In addition to the workshops that are open to any remote leader, Workplaceless also provides this series as an intensive program to remote companies to offer to their teams. Interested companies should contact Tammy Bjelland at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Founded in 2017 by Tammy Bjelland, Workplaceless provides learning and development resources for remote professionals and teams such as self-paced ecourses, live interactive workshops, and a peer-to-peer learning network.
