Join Our Virtual Book Club!

Broken down into three sessions and reading just a few chapters each week, Virtual Book Club is an easy and powerful way to get the remote work learning you need to be successful!

Maybe you’ve been in a book club, but have you ever been to a book club with the author of the book? Imagine being able to read a brand-new book, on a timely and important topic, sharing and learning with others, and being able to interact with the authors, too.

Introducing the Long-Distance Teammate Virtual Book Club.

Over the last year plus, you’ve likely been working from home. But as you have done that, have you considered yourself as a teammate, or an individual contributor? Have you felt like something (other than your commute) was missing from your work? The Long-Distance Teammate: Stay Engaged and Connected While Working Anywhere will help you see what is missing, but more importantly help you proactively make a bigger difference and feel better about your contributions too.

When we first started writing this book, we knew there was a deep need for support of teammates who were new and/or just starting to adapt to a virtual workplace. And with even more organizations and employees working from home (many indefinitely), the need has never been greater.

Working remotely isn’t just a new normal – something we must learn to live with – it is an opportunity to work in ways that provide great operational and productivity results for the organization, as well as provide individual teammates with the opportunity to be a part of great results while finding great meaning for themselves too.

In this virtual book club, we will read just 5 chapters per week. In a series of three sessions, we will meet on Zoom and break out into small discussion groups to discuss these chapters. Included with your book club registration is a comprehensive study guide with suggested questions and ideas. Each small group will use this guide to direct the discussion. Throughout the 45 – 50 minutes in small groups, Kevin & Wayne will pop in and out, helping to discuss and review what you’ve learned. Afterward, we will re-convene all together to wrap-up, share our thoughts and observations and network in the larger group.

In every session, you will be able to ask questions, get feedback and directly interact with the authors! This is a powerful opportunity to get access Kevin and Wayne to ask questions and get feedback!

The Long-Distance Teammate tackles three important issues: navigating the personal and interpersonal, growing the skills to be productive, and communicating effectively--all from a distance. You’ll learn how to get work done effectively, build relationships that are both productive and satisfying, and maintain a career trajectory when they are not in constant close contact with their leader, coworkers, or the organization in general.
