Description:

You might live in Florida and commute to Georgia, but your work team is spread over the entire planet. If bosses, co-workers, employees, customers, and vendors live in different times zones, speak different languages, and need to communicate with different equipment and protocols, what does it mean to manage relationships and resources?

Agenda:

  • Introduction: The Communication Overhead Of Working At A Distance
  • The Key Idea: Even Small Enterprises Need More And Better Communication
  • Who Makes Decisions For The Entire Worknet, And How?
  • How To Establish Rapport And Goodwill
  • What Are The Expectations Of The Other Person And Their Office Or Team?
  • Evaluate Communication, Particularly During Project Deadlines: Is This Working?
  • Evaluate Technology At Least Once A Year: Is Everyone Upgrading Together?
