The Secrets Of Leading Remote Employees

A whopping 72% of leaders admit that they haven’t received the necessary skills to successfully manage remote and hybrid employees. And that’s because remote employees challenge leaders’ abilities to trust and empower, and remoteness requires a drastically different approach to managing worker productivity and accountability. But when remote/hybrid work is done right, a majority of employees say their productivity, creativity, mental health, and even work relationships are better! In this session, Mark teaches audiences the practical science of leading remote and hybrid employees, including which personality types thrive working remotely, 3 mindset shifts that leaders must make for remote teams, how to transmit your culture and values when people are remote, 2 keys to keeping remote employees accountable and productive, and a powerful conversation that keeps remote employees connected and engaged.

So in this session, Mark goes way beyond catchy phrases about ‘staying positive’ and instead teaches audiences the science-driven techniques for building Resilience and Optimism to solve employee burnout, skyrocket employee engagement, retain star employees, and attract high performers.
