Manage Virtual Teams for Maximum Results.

Working remotely is a reality of today's and tomorrow's workforce. With organizations switching from a model of only on-site employees to on-site and virtual employees working globally, managers need guidance on how to address the traditional and not-so-traditional issues that occur when staff is not collocated.

The Unashamed Guide to Virtual Management provides that direction for topics such as onboarding new staff and delivering performance reviews as well as for the more offbeat issues like handling office romance and doing laundry on the job.

Using short chapters and a fun, whimsical, yet straightforward style, Ben Bisbee and Kathy Wisniewski answer the critical questions about how to manage virtual teams. No matter your problem, you'll be able to evaluate what went wrong, determine how the solution fits within your organizational personality, and implement a process to make it stick. Rather than scrambling to figure out how to handle an unexpected situation, virtual managers can consult the authors' advice on more than 30 topics, including:
  • time zones, flexible schedules, and privacy
  • hiring and interviews, onboarding, and professional development
  • team building, morale, and celebrations
  • interruptive pets and children, errands, and meetings from the bathroom.
From the mundane to the awkward, this book covers it all–because you will have to manage it from wherever you are!
