About The Book

Leading from Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Managing Remote Teams.
by David Burkus

The ultimate guide to leading remote teams, tackling the key challenges that managers face—from hiring and onboarding new members from afar to building culture remotely, tracking productivity, communicating speedily, and avoiding burnout.

It’s undeniable that we’re entering a new era of remote work. While many leaders seek to run business as usual, why settle for the usual when remote teams allow us to work even better? The research shows that employees are more productive and engaged when they have the freedom to work from anywhere.

Which means leaders need the skills to lead from anywhere.

In this meticulously researched, refreshingly practical book, top business thought leader David Burkus provides managers with the field guide to leading remotely, packed with everyday examples and illuminating insights. Structured around the life cycle of working on a team, Burkus tackles the key inflection points and challenges that remote managers face, from taking the team remote and adding new members to communicating effectively and quickly, managing performance, keeping the team engaged, and even helping them strike the right balance between work and life.

Leading from Anywhere provides everything you’ll need to survive and thrive as the leader of a remote team—something all leaders will need to consider themselves from now on.

About The Monthly Book Club

The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.

Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.

Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.

You can also join the PMIWDC Amazon Book Club to suggest future books or see what books we plan to read in the future.
