Distance working requires different skills.

As a leader or as a virtual worker, you quickly find out that "business as usual" leaves you feeling isolated, unsure of goals, expectations, or opportunities. It's more than just a communication shift... it's a whole new way of business!

Call it virtual work, working from home, distance teams, distributed workforce... but they all mean that you need different skills to work successfully!

about us

This all started because we needed help, too.

I know. I've been there.

Hi, I'm Dr. Christopher Wells, and I'm a distance leader. Throughout my work career, I have had employees and bosses that were very far away from me. When I turned to existing research to help me understand how I could be a better employee and a better leader, I realized that there was a problem.

Distance leadership was missing.

There are lots of articles and books on virtual teams, being a distance employee, and working from home or other locations of your choosing, but information for distance leaders? Almost nothing. 


Engagement, realism, and humor:
Our approach is different

Raise your hand if you have ever been required to read boring, humorless, or dreadful business books. Us, too! It doesn't have to be that way, though, so join our community and be part of a dynamic, and fun, leadership group.

Whether it is through a webinar, an online course, a one-on-one mentoring session, a large keynote presentation, or a small-group class, our focus is on meaningful, impactful, and actionable steps that lead to immediate success.


What our clients say...

Our speaker, Dr. Christopher Wells, shared his first-hand experience, and the presentation presentation ROCKED THE HOUSE! His seminar was full of great examples, tactics, tips, and techniques that were immediately applicable.

Mark T.

Marketing firm owner

This is great - I always appreciate the quick response and support. You rock!

Your input on our team's opportunities has made an immediate, and positive, difference on how our team succeeds.

Nicole H.

Senior Director,
national business practice leader

It is not often that a training or presentation will have an immediate positive effect or outcome, but Christopher's work just delivers. His can do / never say no attitude is so effective. We are lucky that Dr. Wells is on the side of the good guys!

Regional sales director

Let's start with something you can use tomorrow (or later today, actually)

We developed this great resource, Five Steps to Building Employee Trust, and it's become a bit of a hit with our clients. We decided to give it away for free!
