A Virtual Book Club to Help You Lead Virtually!

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 leadership 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(s) of the book? Now you can read a book, discuss and learn about it from others, and then ask questions of the authors.

Introducing the Long-Distance Leader Virtual Book Club.

When we wrote this book two years ago, there was a deep need for support of organizations and leaders 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.

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!

In The Long-Distance Leader, you’ll learn foundational principles of leadership to help you successfully lead your team no matter where they’re located.

You’ll learn our unique “Three-O” Model which refocuses leaders to think about outcomes, others, and ourselves. By pairing it with the Remote Leadership Model, which emphasizes using technology as a tool and not a distraction, you will learn how navigate the terrain of managing teams wherever they are. Filled with exercises that ensure projects stay on track and keep productivity and morale high, it’s the go-to guide for leading effectively, no matter where people work.
