Remote leader exclusive masterclass for tech founders

August 25, 2020 - September 3, 2020

Where are you leading well and where are you falling short? What steps should you take to be the best leader of your remote or hybrid company that you can be?

Building your company is the best yet hardest thing you’ve ever done, and the next 12-18 months are critical to your business’ growth. The workplace has changed forever, and excellent remote leadership in this new era is your greatest opportunity, and your greatest threat if done poorly.

The pandemic has accelerated the remote workplace revolution that was already underway. How can you maximize the opportunities while helping your company navigate the new normal? How can you ensure the impact of your leadership is at the level it needs to be, especially with so many of your interactions now happening virtually.

Join the Remote Leader Masterclass where Organizational Psychologist and Distributed Workplace Expert, Dr. Laura Hambley of Work EvOHlution, will assess your unique strengths and development needs when it comes to leading from a distance. The Masterclass tuition includes personalized feedback, utilizing the Distributed Leader Profiler (DLP), a cutting-edge psychometric assessment, which is debriefed in a blend of group and individual coaching co-facilitated with Candace Giesbrecht, Teamit’s Strategic HR Coach & Consultant, who brings extensive experience in helping leaders and organizations to thrive.

Tuition is normally $1350. accelerate Okanagan have partnered with Metabridge to offer a discount of 35%!!: $875 per person.

(*Note: Masterclass registration is limited to 12 spots and is exclusive to Tech Founders!)
