LEAN COFFEE: Author Melissa Romo on leading remote teams in a downturn
April 26, 19:00 — 20:00 CEST

Lean Virtual Coffee

Wednesday, 26 April
19:00 - 20:00 CEST (Amsterdam time)
With Lisette Sutherland and Melissa Romo, author of Your Resource is Human

James Bidwell, CEO Springwise, and author of Disrupt! 100 Lessons in Business Innovation says Melissa Romo's book is "A must read for all of us interested in figuring out the future."

Leading a remote team takes a special set of skills, but leading a remote team during a downturn takes even more. Join us for an exclusive conversation with Melissa Romo, the author of the new practical guide to remote leadership, "Your Resource Is Human: How empathetic leadership can help remote teams rise above."

Melissa will talk to us about two remote leadership behaviors from her book that have special importance during a downturn: setting boundaries and communicating with optimism. How do you lead this way while managing disruption and increasing workloads? Melissa will tell us how!

Lean Coffee attendees will receive a discount to purchase the book direct from the publisher, and one lucky attendee will be chosen at random to win a signed paperback copy! Learn more about the book and Melissa at melissaromoauthor.com
