  1. Regarding this white paper: Best Practices for Managing a Team Remotely

    It's odd to me, here in 2012, that there is still so much attachment to an 18th century factory model for 21st century knowledge workers! Knowledge knows no boundaries, and I look forward to the day when increasing numbers of laptop jockies are freed from the confines of office distractions to work remotely from the location of their choice.

    Great article!

    1. Thanks, Sarah! Kate Nasser recently wrote a post on leading virtual teams... it's a great add and will hopefully help us advance the archaic thoughts on this topic! (

      Annette :-)

      P.S. For those who are wondering why it took me 4 months to respond to Sarah, I assure you I respond to your comments in a timely manner. Sarah and I just happen to know each other and have had this discussion many times over the last several years. She has reported to me twice (virtually) during that time. :-) I wanted to add a note about Kate's post here because it is quite relevant.
