Virtual-Team managers worldwide are already praising this path-breaking work:
“Zofi’s excellent book is a practical how-to guide to the new world of virtual teams. It’s the most comprehensive resource I know of to help managers deal with cross-cultural virtual challenges. She has filled it with great anecdotes from the front lines. The exercises are real-world scenarios with detailed action plans and step-by-step blueprints. This book is a ‘must have’ for managers who want to be effective in an increasingly complex society.” — Robert J. Lee, Ph.D., Managing Director, iCoachNewYork; former CEO of the Center for Creative Leadership
“Virtual teams are now part of the landscape for most companies. Whether it’s a reality of operating in multiple locations or a way to proactively attract the best talent wherever it is, learning how to maximize its value—and avoid its pitfalls—will give you an invaluable competitive advantage. This book guides you through everything you need to know about managing virtual teams in a thorough, insightful, and easy-to-understand manner.”— Arturo Poire, Vice President & Global Head of Talent Management, Marsh & McLennan Companies
“Yael Zofi’s A Manager’s Guide to Virtual Teams is a must-read for managers and directors operating in LEAN businesses, where scarce talent in remote corners of different organizations must work together to complete initiatives using fractions of their time.” — Jeanine Johnson, Senior Manager, Amazon
“Regardless of where you are in your career, A Manager’s Guide to Virtual Teams is a well organized and comprehensive resource within the global management landscape. It provides global managers with a necessary toolkit and solutions enabling them to establish and inspire winning teams.”— Alex Ovadia, Director, Global Systems, Philips Healthcare
“Even with the quantum leap in the number of virtual work situations, the unique challenge of developing virtual teams has been largely ignored by the field of leadership development. However, Zofi’s groundbreaking research has created the most comprehensive guide to building high-performing virtual teams that I have seen and establishes Yael Zofi as the foremost authority on virtual teams. This resource will change the way progressive organizations operate going forward.” — Jennifer Eggars, Director, Leadership Development and Organization Effectiveness, NCR
“The significant value of this book is that Zofi explains how to help virtual teams function effectively. Based on data from more than 150 interviews with managers and members of virtual teams, coupled with examples of how technology enables the work, and from her experiences working with virtual teams, Zofi helps us to understand what success looks like in the workplace of the 21st century.” — W. Warner Burke, Ph.D., Edward Lee Thorndike Professor of Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University
