May 12 Virtual Chapter Meeting

 Leading Remotely 

Presenter: Ronna Detrick 

Program Information:

How many of these statements apply to you?

  • You find yourself in far too many virtual, even face-to-face conversations, that feel like a waste of time.
  • You spend an inordinate amount of time avoiding conversations that you know need to happen because you're pretty sure the other person can't handle it or that things will get worse instead of better.
  • You sit in virtual meetings, trying to be attentive, but wishing you could get back to doing something that actually matters.
  • You are noticing, now that nearly everyone is working remotely, that productivity seems to be lower - maybe even your own – and that accountability feels like a distant memory.
  • You are struggling with feeling overwhelmed by the circumstances facing you personally, not to mention professional realities.
You're not alone. All of us are struggling with these things and more these days. Whether faced with COVID-19 or not, the problem inherent within each of them is that we're not having the kinds of conversations needed. Or if we are having them, they're not getting us the results we hope for and need. 


  • Learn the why, what, and how of conversations that make a difference.
  • Build accountability for self and others to ensure productivity and high engagement in work-remote situations.
  • A practical coaching conversation model that can be utilized in professional and personal realms – virtually and face-to-face.
  • Small group discussion will enhance personal relevance, shared experience, collaborative learning, and networking
