PRC Presents at Boulder Start-Up Week
June 10, 2020
It’s no surprise that last month’s Boulder Start-Up Week, the annual week-long celebration of entrepreneurship, was held virtually this year. So it’s apropos that the organizers asked PRC CEO Tara Powers to present on Day One about Strategies for Working Virtually.
Under the title of “Emerge Stronger: Success Strategies for Leading and Working Virtually,” Powers led a virtual mentoring session where she discussed the challenges leaders are facing during the COVID-19 quarantine and strategies to overcome them. Specifically, she talked about what makes virtual teams effective, the key agreements to have in place, communications methods that work and leadership styles that make virtual teams thrive.
As an expert on virtual work and the author of Virtual Teams for Dummies and founder of virtualteamschool.com, Powers has been in high-demand the past several months to train and speak to leaders and teams about working remotely.
“In addition to threatening our health and well-being, Coronavirus (COVID-19) clearly has long-range implications for how we will work,” said Powers. “I’ve been training virtual teams and leaders for years, and it is an honor to be able to make my experience and knowledge available to BSW attendees during this global health crisis. I am confident that we can emerge from this disruption even stronger by learning new skills that reinforce community and connection with our teams.”
