Course Overview 

Course Quality Rating


Course Description
Leaders face new challenges as they cope with changes in culture, technology, and the workplace. This webinar examines the impact of distance—physical, interpersonal, and social—on our organizations, our governments, and our societies. It is now quite possible to develop followers and influence others halfway around the world, while it remains equally likely that the follower in the next cubicle may be oblivious to a leader's sphere of influence. Based on our recent book on the same topic, we will review some initial ideas about how distance is altering the study and practice of leadership.


The webinar will address new research and theory that explores when and how leadership is transformed through space and time, and in what ways the notion of ""distance"" creates continuously evolving meanings for the leader-follower relationship.
