How to Lead Virtually in 2021 and Beyond (EP054)

In the current business environment, many professionals are asking themselves, “How to lead virtually in 2021”, or “how can I be successful at virtual leadership”. If you’re an emerging leader and you’ve asked yourself these questions while you’ve been working from home, this week’s podcast episode and YouTube video are for you.

Virtual leadership requires a shift in your leadership skillset. You don’t have regular in-person contact with your team which makes communication, and other essential leadership skills, much more difficult. 

On top of that, stress levels are high. People are frustrated. Your team may be losing motivation or they may be overwhelmed. 

As a leader, it’s really important that you keep on top of all of these issues so you can continue to move projects along and achieve your leadership goals.

In this episode, I share seven tips to help you stay on top of your leadership game in 2021 and beyond.
