Visual leadership in a virtual world - LinkedIn LIVE

By David Lawrence |

The reality of working remotely long term is now sinking in. It is not going to go away anytime soon and leaders are now planning for the long haul.

After the initial rush to get all the tools in place, most of us realise it is not about the tools, it is about the things we do on top that will make the difference.

Dr Penny Pullan, author of a book on Virtual Leadership joined us for our LinkedIn LIVE event to explore what you can do to get the best out of your workforce in a long-term virtual environment.
