„Virtually Disastrous: What you really need to know about leadership across distance“ by Gary Thomas
Globalisation is here to stay – yet no one is really prepared. Many teams tasked with managing globalisation are clearly out of their depth. This is primarily because these teams work virtually and internationally over great distances. The team members no longer sit face to face in their offices, instead they communicate across countries and continents via modern communication media.
Leading a conventional team to top performance is difficult enough, not least because of the inevitable group dynamic involved. When the context becomes virtual, this all too often leads to management failure. This book describes in an entertaining style the art of leading virtual teams including practical tips, helpful suggestions, and numerous illustrative examples that span many industries and countries along the four core challenges of virtual team leadership today.

Welcome to your educast on non-violent communication. A communication process developed by Marshall Rosenberg. Non-violent communication maintains the problems, issues, conflicts between groups or individuals that often arises from confusion and miscommunication about our human needs, our emotions or what we want someone to do.
