In this virtual book club, we will meet over a series of three sessions (delivered through Zoom) to discuss the brand-new book, The Long-Distance Teammate: Stay Engaged and Connected While Working Anywhere.
Over the last year, many of those new to working remotely have figured out how to get their work done from home, but there is a difference between being a remote worker and being an effective member of a remote team. We must not only learn to operate remotely, but learn how to be a great teammate while working apart from those we collaborate with; especially since virtual organizations are now ubiquitous and, in many cases, here to stay. Even before the pandemic, remote work was growing at nearly 30 percent per year.
In The Long-Distance Teammate, cofounders of the Remote Leadership Institute Kevin Eikenberry and Wayne Turmel offer readers at all levels of an organization clear and compelling advice for moving from team members to teammates. Further, this book offers a roadmap for individuals, allowing them to take ownership of their own engagement to their work and relieving the stress and frustrations that can come from remote working arrangements.
And now, you get the opportunity to learn from and speak directly with these remote work experts in this Virtual Book Club!
Each week during the Virtual Book Club, Kevin and Wayne will meet on Zoom with the book club participants, breaking into small discussion groups where you will discuss several chapters of the book. Using our comprehensive study guide with suggested questions and ideas, you will meet with your group for 45 – 50 minutes to discuss and review what you’ve learned. Afterward, we will re-convene to wrap-up, share our thoughts and observations and network in the larger group.
Kevin and Wayne will kick off each Zoom session and pop in and out of the smaller discussion groups to help facilitate, answer questions and provide invaluable insight into their book.
This is a powerful and affordable opportunity to get access to Kevin & Wayne – today’s top remote work and leadership thought leaders. In every session, you will be able to ask questions, get feedback and directly interact with them!
