This has been a week of in-person gatherings for several members of our virtual team. While more and more of the Weaving Influence crew are now based in the Northern Ohio/Southern Michigan region, there are still a number of us who are scattered across the United States (with one working regularly from China, and another based out of Columbia, South America).
Pulling the team together in person is one way to keep things authentic, but so are secret Facebook groups where we share jokes, and Google hangouts where we have the opportunity to see facial expressions and check in on more than just work. Growing and supporting a virtual team isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth the effort, as this week has confirmed.
We’ve had a few weeks of “down time” (it’s never truly slow around here!) since our last book launch, but we’re getting back into gear as we get ready to promote The Disciplined Leader next week, and then the new book from today’s author, Wired for Authenticity.
