Working Conversations Episode 18:
There is More to Distance than Space and Time
We often think about not being collocated when we think of “distance,” especially when working remotely. That is a relatively simplistic way to view distance. There are many more factors beyond space and time that create distance between us and those we manage, or those who work alongside us if we are not managing the work of others. In this episode I dig into the research on Virtual Distance and share a model of Virtual Distance from Dr. Karen Sobel Lojeski that takes into account more nuance types of distance like operational distance and affinity distance. You’ll come away from this episode with new insights on how to stay close with your co-workers and direct reports, even if you are geographically far away!
