Teleworkers can be supervised from a distance better than people working down the hall. But supervision of teleworkers is different than for office workers.

Understanding the essentials of supervision is criticial for both teleworkers and supervisors, management and organizational leaders.

Telecommuters boost your organization’s profitability, productivity, financial stability, competitiveness and efficiency. Plus you can recruit the best people regardless of where they live.

Tour a model virtual office. Then take away the core management practices to supervise teleworkers for a win-win for both employees and management. After attending, you will have the knowledge necessary to successfully supervise, and be supervised, in a distance environment. Includes the book, "Nine Shift: Work, life and education in the 21st Century."

About LERN

The Learning Resources Network (LERN) is a North American consulting and training organization in the areas of continuing education, online teaching and 21st century information skills.

In 1998 LERN became a virtual organization, allowing staff to live and work anywhere.  Staff and consultants now live in 8 U.S. states, Canada and India.

About three quarters of staff work from home, with the others working in two offices in Wisconsin and Kansas.

From our experience in telecommuting, supervising telecommuters and becoming a virtual organization, we have written a book and a manual on working from home from a business perspective.
  
Your instructors have each been telecommuting for 12 years.  They all write, speak and consult on telecommuting and managing telecommuters. They each have created productive home offices, supervised telecommuters, and engaged in strategic organizational planning.
