Leadership Consultant | Co-Author
Over the last year and a quarter, since March 2020, a lot of us have been thrown into this work from anywhere world without any prior preparation. It is like being thrown into the deep end of a swimming pool without any prior training. We have had to figure out our own response to the evolving situation. While there has been no shortage of wisdom and webinars, I have been looking for a research backed view to learn from. In that context, I am excited to bring the next conversation with Darleen DeRosa (Consultant at SpencerStuart's Stamford office) and author of Leading at a Distance: Practical Lessons for Virtual Success, that she has co-authored with her colleague Jim Citrin, who leads SpencerStuart's North American CEO practice and is a core member of the firm's Board practice. SpencerStuart is one of the world's leading Leadership Advisory Services firms. Darleen has been studying Remote Work since 2008 long before COVID struck.
Given a lot of the listeners to this podcast are leaders in India or of Indian origin, we have also weaved in insights from some of the leaders in SpencerStuart in India (Ritu Kochhar, Sahiba Singh, Atul Bhandari and Rohit Kale) to contextualize the insights.
We speak about nuances in building relationships in 2D, driving accountability in a virtual world, what the office of the future looks like, effective remote leadership hiring, facilitating effective transitions, managing your energy in a relentless, all consuming online world and much more.
