21st Century Work Life and leading remote teams

The world of work is changing. Our attitudes to work are changing. The 21st Century Work Life podcast looks at different ways of earning a living, of using technology at work and of managing teams. If you're working in a conventional office, if you're part of a virtual team or if you just want to find out how our attitudes to work keep evolving, join Pilar Orti and guests every week. And if you're working in a virtual team or are a remote worker, pop in every other week for virtual coffee with Lisette Sutherland - she's got great advice for you! Pilar Orti blogs at Virtual, not Distant.
