Leading From a Distance in a Remote and Hybrid World

Presented by Richard Hadden, Certified Speaking Professional and Co-Author of the popular Contented Cows leadership book series! Richard has appeared on CNN and MSNBC, and his work has been featured in Business Week, Entrepreneur, and Inc. magazines, as well as many trade and professional publications.

While the fundamentals of Leadership and Employee Engagement have NOT changed, the context in which leaders practice those fundamentals HAS. Compared to leading and engaging workers in a traditional setting, doing so from a distance carries its own special set of challenges. While people still need vision, feedback, performance management, development, recognition, and community… delivering these necessities is harder, but not impossible, when we’re separated. Add to that the current reality that many organizations are operating in a hybrid model, where some are working onsite, and others are working from elsewhere - and you come to the stark conclusion that nothing you’ve ever done before has prepared you for this moment.

In this meeting participants will learn:

  • How the impact of human connection at work is even stronger than we thought
  • How the workplace changes accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic will continue indefinitely, even after the health risk is under control
  • How, and why, to maintain the “Spirit of the Hive”
  • Lots of practical ways leaders have discovered to keep their teams connected and productive, wherever they are
  • New ways to evaluate productivity in a Work from Anywhere environment
  • The one overarching thing you have to do to keep remote and hybrid teams engaged

Come and learn how to engage the workforce of today, and attract and retain the workforce of tomorrow, in this practical, content-packed, and entertaining presentation.
