Live Webinar: The Science of Managing Remote Employees [AUGUST 10TH]
EVENT DATE: FRIDAY, AUGUST 10TH AT 1PM EASTERN
Having remote employees should be a huge advantage—you get the best talent from all over the world, you don’t pay for relocation or office space, AND research shows that remote employees work 4 hours more per week than in-house employees!
So why do companies struggle with remote employees? It’s because many of the leadership techniques you use inside the office simply don’t work with remote employees.
For example, hot-shot companies that are predominantly remote (like WordPress, 37Signals, and GitHub) don’t use nearly as much email as typical companies because it’s such a poor communication vehicle. [Did you know that a McKinsey study found that the average worker spends 28% of their weekly time on checking/sending email?!?! Ironically, if you want to be a great remote company, you cannot waste that much time on email—you’ll need to use more social technologies.]
New York Times Bestselling author Mark Murphy is hosting a live webinar titled “The Science of Managing Remote Employees” to share the latest research and best practices about how to be an effective leader in the virtual workplace.
This 60-minute webinar called “The Science of Managing Remote Employees” will show you:
- New research that shows which personality types (e.g. introverts, extroverts, etc.) make the best, most engaged, most productive remote employees (HINT: It’s not what you think.)
- Sure-fire ways to assess and measure remote employees’ job performance without using invasive and expensive techniques to spy on their every move
- Why you should NEVER ask “How’s it going?” to remote employees
- 3 attitude adjustments that leaders must make to successfully manage remote employees
- The 1 question you can ask at the end of every virtual meeting to avoid being undermined behind your backby people who disagree with you
- 3 tools guaranteed to build trust with remote employees
- How to transmit your corporate culture to employees who never get to see your corporate office
- The pros and cons (and creative uses) of the latest technologies: social media, wikis, intranets, blogs, etc., plus one free tool to help you keep your virtual employees accountable
- A 3-step process for delegating large projects that require frequent progress checks (without being demonized as a micromanager)
- 2 keys to keeping remote employees disciplined and productive
- A specific weekly regimen that keeps remote employees connected and aligned
- How to avoid the 5 emotional “trigger words” in emails that cause misunderstandings, spark conflict and get you in trouble
- The 10-minute conversation that keeps remote employees feeling connected and engaged
- How to end every email with a “call to action” that elicits immediate productivity

I was fortunate enough to participate a four part Leadership IQ e-Learning series presented by Mark Murphy that helped enhance my leadership skills. Each class was informative, pertinent, and helpful to my position at the Firm. I found this course, “The Science of Managing Remote Employees”, equally beneficial. The material is presented in a format that is logical and easy to understand, and more importantly relevant to today’s work environment. The information is backed up with reputable research and examples you can relate to in real life. I look forward to more Leadership IQ e-Learning classes in the future.

Dealing with Bullies and Intimidators was a great session. I was anxious to attend as I work with and for some toxic people. This program has now provided me with the tools to avoid being their target, identify warning signs, and becoming assertive and in some instances protective of myself. I normally would submit for reimbursement for classes but I am treating this as a therapy session and it was well worth the price. I will review all the information until it becomes a natural response for me. It will also be a great reference point for further conversations with both my staff (who are awesome) as well as my colleagues and my superiors with whom some of the struggles come. Thanks for all the insight!
