My main take away is the importance of authentic leadership and engaging/including your people in the building of the company "story" and its virtual culture. I also really like the emphasis on us as managers pushing for and taking responsibility for our organizations techno-dexterity and use of modern new w [...]

    2. Really well done. The authors present a very lightweight model for effective leadership in the modern globally distributed organization. I found the case studies and interviews to be very practical and applicable to my career.
