There has been an enormous amount written about how to manage virtual teams. In fact, I have previously written on it a few times myself and teach a class for managers on the topic. Today’s column, however, is a little different. Rather than discussing the management of virtual teams from the manager’s perspective, I’ll be discussing it from the remote worker’s point of view. The reason for this change in headset is, that as managers, we can better lead those working for us if we understand their needs and issues.
Reader question: My husband and I own a small business on a commercially zoned street in a city with about 100,000 people. We are thinking of selling the business and property. Could you recommend an appraiser here? The building is very old and is "grandfathered." We also own an adjoining parking lot. We would like to plan ahead as much as possible. Thanks. Jean F.
