Leading From Afar is for leaders of digital remote teams who may struggle to manage their workflow. As many teams choose to work from the comfort of home, over the office, it is little wonder why it is so popular. How can leaders ensure that teams maintain productivity and engagement? Agility may be the answer. Digital leaders will gain insights to implement Agility to lead remote teams, and the knowledge to enhance team performance and wellbeing. They will know how to manage stakeholders, pivot as a team when change arises and combat ways to address remote work pitfalls.

About the Author

I am an experienced Agile professional. I work as an Agile Workflow Manager in the banking industry. Prior to that I was a Scrum Master responsible for leading two Scrum remote teams. I am deeply passionate about upskilling professionals in Agile. Career highlights include Scrum mastering a team of engineers during the first COVID lockdown of 2021. Another is leading a team that helped roll out the McDonald's Mobile, Order and Pay (MOP) system globally. Outside of work, I write my own blog on Medium, which covers Agile, adaptive management and servant leadership.
