Product description

Product Description

“An excellent guide on how teams can effectively work together, regardless of location.” —Stephane Kasriel, CEO of Upwork

“Having thoroughly researched digital work life and virtual teamwork—and then practicing and perfecting what she’s learned—Lisette can teach you everything you need to know to be a success in the remote-work arena.” —From the foreword by Jurgen Appelo

In today’s modern global economy, telecommuting is no longer a novelty. Companies and organizations everywhere are embracing the game-changing benefits of allowing employees to work outside the office, and the results are profound: managers benefit by saving money and resources and by having access to talent outside their zip codes, while employees enjoy greater job opportunities, productivity, independence, and satisfaction—in part from the time saved not commuting.

The reality is clear: working remotely can be a win-win for everyone.

But that win is only possible when companies have a plan for supporting efficiency and fostering streamlined, engaging teamwork, and when individuals are prepared to collaborate productively. In Work Together Anywhere, Lisette Sutherland, an international champion of virtual-team strategies, offers a full-service guide to thriving in the remote workplace. Sharing powerful advice gleaned from professional experience, extensive research, and interviews with workers and manager/owners around the world, Work Together Anywhere sets out a complete blueprint for optimizing team success, including:

* assessing and developing an individual’s team-focused capacity
* establishing a remote-ready office
* crafting team agreements
* running effective online meetings
* facilitating positive communication practices

Packed with hands-on materials and actionable advice for cultivating camaraderie, agility, and collaboration, Work Together Anywhere is a thorough and inspiring must-have guide for anyone who wants to get ahead in today’s remote-working world.
