As many as a quarter to a third of managers are long-distance leaders. There are plenty of books on managing virtual teams, but little on adapting the eternal rules of leadership in the new era. Remember: managing isn't always leading! Much has changed with the technology of remote leadership--web meetings, video chat, instant messaging, online work platforms--but the essentials have not. This is the first book to separate the new from the old. The authors are internationally known and co-founders of the leading institute to study and improve remote leadership.
