The 3 Ps of Being a Great Remote Teammate
November 4, 2019 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET
As more and more people work from home, companies are paying attention to developing leaders who understand the subtleties of leading from a distance. But what about the individual worker? While working remotely can be a great opportunity, it can also be stressful. For all the independence, control, and ability to work without interruption remote work allows, virtual workers can also feel isolated, frustrated and disengaged. The good news is it doesn’t have to be this way.
