We are taking a deep dive into leading remote and hybrid teams with Kevin Eikenberry, Chief Potential Officer of The Kevin Eikenberry Group. He has spent 30 years helping organizations and leaders from over 50 countries become more effective.
He has written numerous books including Remarkable Leadership, From Bud to Boss, the Long-Distance Leader, The Long-Distance Teammate, and his newest, The Long-Distance Team. So, it’s not surprising that we focused on the leadership skills required to effectively lead remote teams.
We honed in on the fact that despite what many so-called experts are saying, we don’t need a whole new raft of leadership skills to lead remote teams. We also touched on some frequently used but unhelpful language….Virtual Teams. You may be leading a team that isn’t physically located, and unless it’s made up solely of robots and AI apps, it’s still a team of human beings!
