Leading Across Distance

Build global trust, alignment, and commitment.

To succeed in our virtual, global reality, today’s remote leaders must know how to build trust, alignment, and commitment across distance and cultures. This success requires a combination of new skills overlooked by many traditional development programs – including engaging team members across cultures, building presence from a distance, and virtual readiness. The Leading Across Distance program covers the skills and tools required for global leaders to effectively drive results from a distance.

With the assistance of an experienced and certified Aperian Global facilitator, participants in the Leading Across Distance program will be able to:

  • Understand the key factors of distance leadership
  • Use key principles of “communicating with impact” without being physically present
  • Understand how to leverage diversity and cultural differences 
  • Discover strategies to build remote alignment, commitment, and performance
  • Develop skills for designing & facilitating virtual meetings
