VIDEO 02: HOW DO WE BUILD OUR NETWORK IN THE REMOTE WORLD?

All leaders need to network: the relationships they build with peers, direct reports, and senior leaders across the organization are all critical to on-going effectiveness. When you're working from home, this presents challenges.

VIDEO 03: STRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT CONVERSATIONS ("GROW" MODEL)

There's a tendency when managing virtually to have a laser focus on task—the work that needs to be done. But as a manager you also have a responsibility to help your direct reports develop and grow.
