| Competencies: Communication, Leadership & Navigation, Relationship Management
Workplace Application:
Learn strategies for effectively engaging and managing remote employees to drive successful business outcomes. 

Work used to be something done in offices. Today, it's done in coffeeshops, coworking spaces, and on couches across the world. Not only does remote work provide better work-life balance for employees, it can be highly beneficial to employers as well, including increased employee engagement, higher retention, and lower operating costs. In a world where 76% of Millennials would prefer to have a job that pays less money if it offers flexible work, acquiring top talent is becoming more and more difficult without allowing employees virtual work options. As the CEO of a fully-remote workforce with 26 full-time employees and 3,000 independent contractors, Chris Dyer has a deep understanding of the benefits and challenges that come with virtual teams. Chris attributes much of this success to creating a phenomenal virtual workforce where employees strive to do their best every single day. In this session, Chris shares secrets for a high-performance culture where virtual employees thrive.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to devlop a familial workplace culture where virtual employees feel emotionally connected and invested.
  • Learn how to build two-way trust and better communication between remote employees and managers.
  • Learn how to spot when certain job functions or employees are simply not compatible with remote work.
