Summary, etc.:
By 2025, some 70 percent of the workforce will work remotely at least five days each month. But to succeed, Takako Hirata believes that leaders can't simply transfer what they've been doing in the physical office to the remote environment. It takes new leadership principles. In The Virtual Leader, Takako shares the unique remote work strategies she developed and tested over a decade as Head of International Business Development at ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. The results? She gained improved efficiency, greater engagement, stronger innovation, and a deeper sense of community from her remote teams. Now Takako can help you evolve your leadership style and core competencies to empower your teams. Her strategies will enable you to conduct productive meetings and support clear, efficient communications. She'll show you how to maximize focus and minimize distractions. You'll discover ways to keep your teams mentally and physically healthy. And you'll learn much more, to get the most - and the best - out of remote work.
