Collaboration challenges are the main issue
of our time in this, the Digital Age. But is the world truly ‘flat’?
Is distance really dead? So say those that claim that with the advent of
mobile communication technology, distance has become a non-issue. But funeral
plans for the death of distance are premature. Pioneer Karen Sobel Lojeski
redefines the concept and coined the term “virtual distance” which explains
why we still can feel “apart” even when we are “always connected” – and
this leads to significant impact on key success criteria. Karen presents
empirical data about perceptual and behavioral shifts and shows how new
workforce dynamics can have measurable impact on performance, innovation,
and leadership. She presents valuable “how tos” on ways to improve results
and well-being throughout the enterprise.
Karen Sobel Lojeski, Ph.D. is CEO
of Virtual Distance International, a research-based management advisory
company that creates breakthrough models and methodologies for improving
