CSN Book Club: The Long-Distance Leader — Rules for Remarkable Remote Leadership  (back)
Do you supervise a team remotely (or even hybrid)? Do you enjoy leadership development opportunities with your peers? Then this Campus Supervisors Network event is for you!

As more organizations adopt a remote workforce, the challenges of leading at a distance become more urgent than ever. In The Long-Distance Leader, authors Kevin Eikenberry and Wayne Turmel show leaders how to guide their teams by recalling the foundational principles of leadership, whether their teams are scattered globally or just working from home a few days a week.

The authors’ “Three O” Model refocuses leaders to think about outcomes, others and ourselves –– elements of leadership that remain unchanged whether employees are down the hall or halfway around the world. By pairing it with the Remote Leadership Model, which emphasizes using technology as a tool and not a distraction, leaders can navigate the terrain of managing teams wherever they are.

With models and strategies that ensure projects stay on track, keep productivity and morale high, and build lasting relationships, The Long-Distance Leader is the go-to guide for leading effectively, no matter where people work.

We will ship you a copy of the book, and CSN members will guide you through certain sections during our time together.

During this two-session book club, we will discuss:
• Why leading remotely requires you to lead differently
• How the Three O Model and the Remote Leadership Model work together
• The importance of building trust in teams, and especially remote teams
• To choose the best tool for long-distance communication
• and more!

It’s important to attend both sessions for this to be an effective learning experience. Please consider that before registering.

You will be contacted by us after registration about how to obtain your book.
