The Accidental Remote Manager
Are you an overwhelmed manager who is doubting their ability to lead a remote team effectively? Does your day consist of back to back zoom meetings, with no time to think strategically?
Hi, Accidental Remote Manager!
I totally understand your struggles as a remote manager, because I have experienced them too, just a few months ago. That's why I wrote this book for you.
Looking at the technology landscape today, there are a lot of us who became remote managers overnight. We became managers with distributed teams due to circumstances beyond our control and are now wondering if we should be leading differently. Moreover, with the Great Resignation, the role that managers play become even more important - People don't quit a job, they quit a boss.
The reason why I put this book together now is to provide a back to the basics guide for managers in understanding and adapting the fundamentals of leadership that are critical to surviving the sudden transition to remote working and leading.
