Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

This is the Lehigh University Marketing Department in action - actively working on how to provide the most engaging and inclusive distance and hybrid learning experience possible for the Fall. There are so many similarities between the work I do to train teams and leaders how to lead, collaborate, and communicate across distance with what teachers are having to learn to provide #distancelearning this Fall. I was honored to be able to talk at their faculty meeting to provide some concepts and tips to add to their teaching toolkit.

I graduated from Lehigh in ’00 with a degree in marketing and have continued to stay close to the department over the last twenty years through guest lecturing and other opportunities. The school has continued to support my ambitions, first as a marketer, and now as I build my virtual leadership training and remote work consulting business, Virtual Work Insider.

📣 Coming in November: My #ExecutiveEducation course for Lehigh University's Vistex Institute for Executive Learning & Research - Virtual Leadership: Essential Skills for Leading a Hybrid and Remote Workforce, Now and Post-COVID will be given again in November. More details to come!

Join our CEO, Sacha Connor, on August 12th as she leads a panel of our clients & colleagues to share how they, and the large enterprises they lead, are adapting to remote work during COVID, and what’s in store for the future.

Panelists:
🎤Eric Schuetzler: Global VP of R&D, Beam Suntory. Even prior to COVID he recognized the need create location inclusion across his different R&D sites & his leadership team has championed role modeling the right behaviors. Fortuitously his entire team completed our training series right before COVID!

🎤Mardi Kaplan: Training & Development Manager, Toyota Financial Services. Their salesforce was in the middle of the transition to fully remote when COVID hit. She and her team have been instrumental in supporting the salesforce with skills & tools to work remotely, including having us & our partners at Workplaceless execute a combo of instructor-led training & e-learning.

🎤 Kyra De St. Paer: Director of Marketing, The Clorox Company. She is a keen business leader and an amazing remote leadership role model. Together Kyra and Sacha pioneered remote work at Clorox & co-founded the first-ever virtual workforce employee resource group.
