Discussion: Shifting Management and Leadership Roles in a Digital Age
“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”

—Robin S. Sharma

Leading is difficult enough to manage in a traditional work environment where everyone is in the same physical location at the same time. When managing and leading in a virtual environment, the challenges increase, and the manager’s or leader’s role may change.

During this Discussion, research current thinking and practices related to the management and leadership roles in virtual environments. Consider any additional insights from your personal experience (as a manager, leader, or employee) working virtually and globally in a dispersed online environment.

Before you begin this Discussion, be sure to review the Readings and Media.

Discussion Goals
Your goal in this Discussion is to identify attitudes, knowledge, skills, strategies, and technologies needed for managing virtual teams in a digital age.
