I just read an interview with Learn Better author. Whether I’m teaching tomorrow’s workforce today, training educators, or working with virtual leaders, it’s all about Connection, Relationship, and Meaning – with information, with each other, with our goals.
Work is built on integrated networks, technology platforms that structure the way we work, connect, and communicate. Read more here or download a sample chapter about the new workplace from Working Virtually: Transforming the Mobile Workplace.

Guest Contributor and long-time colleague, Amy Connell, has worked in a highly visible marketing capacity for three Fortune 500 companies. Read her story and suggestions here.
Also, my first on-demand course is available through this blog post. The Powerful Role of the Virtual Leader is an introductory course to the virtual management model I teach in Working Virtually: Transforming the Mobile Workplace.
I’m reposting the last The SMART Workplace Blog post on what great leaders say to engage their teams. People are taking Virtual Workplace University’s Kickstarter course for today’s team manager, offered free for a limited time.
I’l be speaking at the inaugural EdVET Conference for teachers and trainers on Friday 28 April 2017 in Melbourne. I’ll actually be spending two weeks working with educators on topics such as:
- Teaching tomorrow’s workforce today
- An engagement-driven rapid course design approach
- Teacher as online facilitator – role model, stringent evaluator AND slacker
- Aligning course learning outcomes to student learning goals
- Where and when to do what – blended learning and flipped classrooms.
I’ll wave from Down Under!
What makes a Manager great? As is often the case, we can look to Google for some of the answers. A couple of years ago their People Analytics team studied what makes a great manager. But before they did that, they actually tried to prove that managers don’t really matter. This exercise quickly revealed that managers did matter.
“Best Fit” workplaces consider virtual and co-located work environments as viable places to get the job done. “Best Fit” workplaces find and build talented teams that align with the organization’s desired culture and goals. They’re SMART about how they design the organizational structure so that it “fits” the way work gets done and the way knowledge is stored.
Wishing all of you a very SMART New Year. Take time to set a some positive goals for yourself and your organization. Our Manager Kickstart Class is just one way to get started. COMING END OF JAN.
