In today’s unprecedented work environment, many workers are fully remote for the first time. Leading them with the same skills and approaches used back in the office doesn’t work, and overloading them with emails and meetings is creating unprecedented levels of burnout. But it’s also not easy for leaders to learn new techniques and strategies during a crisis.
Lehigh’s concise, timely Virtual Leadership: Essential Skills for Leading a Hybrid and Remote Workforce, Now and Post-COVID program will help you meet current challenges and succeed well into the future (where we can expect many teams to remain at least partially remote). It is taught by Sacha Connor, virtual leadership expert and the founder of Virtual Work Insider™, a consultancy that coaches organizations to work seamlessly across distance. Sacha has 18 years of business leadership experience both client and agency-side, and eight years of experience leading large, distributed teams fully remotely as a remote work pioneer for The Clorox Company and her clients include Toyota, Beam Suntory, Cigna, and Gilead.
The program is delivered in a best-of-class virtual format that goes well beyond lectures. Following best practices and principles for distance learning, it builds a true classroom community that raises engagement and leverages the experiences of fellow learners. The program also includes exercises designed to maximize knowledge retention.
