AVAILABLE APRIL 2022

By 2025, an estimated 70 percent of the workforce will work remotely at least five days each month. In The Virtual Leader, Takako Hirata, an experienced leader of large international virtual teams, shares her proven methods for thriving in the remote workplace with the help of new leadership principles.

Remote work is here to stay.

As a result, remote leadership is now a core competency for most executives and managers.

Leaders cannot simply transfer what they’ve been doing in the office to the remote context. While the goals remain the same—efficiency, engagement, community—the means of achieving those are very different.

In The Virtual Leader, Takako Hirata shares the proven leadership methods she has developed over nearly a decade coordinating teams across the globe as the head of international business development at ROHTO Pharmaceutical.

Hirata has seen firsthand that while the remote environment presents its own set of obstacles, the opportunities for innovation far outweigh the challenges. Because remote work is only advantageous when it’s done right, she offers workers and leaders a comprehensive guide to making the most of the world of remote work through strategies such as:

  Conserving office rituals in the remote environment
  Cultivating trust
  Enabling clear and efficient communication
  Making your company leaner and reinvesting in your teams
  Maintaining mental and physical health
  Conducting productive meetings
  Minimizing distractions and maximizing focus
  Managing new expectations for employees

With The Virtual Leader, learn how to evolve your leadership style to empower your teams to thrive wherever they work.
