The Non-Obvious Guide to Virtual Collaboration

Using Slack, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google, or Any Other Tool

eBook coming December, 2020; Paperback drops on January, 2021

“If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that effectively working together in a distributed and virtual fashion is essential. Phil Simon provides a clear framework to achieve this critical yet elusive goal.”
—Brad Feld, Foundry Group partner, Techstars co-founder, and author of Startup Communities

Make no mistake: Tens of millions of people used Slack, Zoom, Microsoft Teams and other collaboration tools before the word coronavirus entered the vernacular. When COVID-19 hit, usage of these new tools exploded for one simple reason: people had no choice but to use them. Forced adoption at its finest.

The tools have may have changed, but old habits die hard. That is, six months into a global pandemic, the sad facts remain: Adoption of these tools is far from universal. I also suspect that relatively few people use them well, and rare is the individual who uses them to their fullest capacity. Ironically, employees are often less productive and more overwhelmed than they were a year ago despite having access to tools designed to achieve the opposite effect.

This. Is. Insane.

In this short and informative guide, I’ll reveal the non-obvious ways to promote virtual collaboration. In the process, readers will learn how to be more productive and, just as important, maintain their sanity while on the clock.

The book will be part of the Non-Obvious series from Ideapress.
