    Do distributed teams really work? We've all heard the benefits for employees: improved work-life balance, increased flexibility, and broader employment opportunities. For employers, having a distributed workforce pays dividends in increased productivity and the ability to recruit and retain the best of the best.

    From a leadership perspective, managing a successful distributed team is both the same as, and different from, managing an in-office team. In this talk, we'll look at the rewards and challenges including how you must adapt leadership styles and management tools in a distributed environment. We'll include stories of the good, the bad, and the ugly, and talk about how to translate and update your skills for the remote workforce of the future.
