Wayne Turmel: The way we work has changed forever. Many of us are working remotely, and even when we go into the office, we might be, probably are, better on hybrid teams where not everyone's working in the same place at the same time. Some of us are even becoming full time digital nomads. These changes, and the flexibility it gives our lives, are great but it brings challenges and the need for new skills and ways of working and thinking.

And that's what the Long-Distance Worklife is all about. I'm Wayne Turmel, coauthor of The Long-Distance Leader and The Long-Distance Teammate. And for almost 20 years I've been studying and teaching about how people communicate and make remote work happen, or don't as the case may be. But this isn't about me. That's why I'm not doing the show alone.

Marisa Eikenberry: I'm Marisa Eikenberry, part of the Kevin Eikenberry Team. As somebody with less experience in the workforce, I have a lot of questions. Some weeks we'll answer my questions and some of yours as well. Our goal is to discuss topics crucial to the long-distance work life.

How do you build relationships?

How will technology shape how we work and live in the future?

What does it mean to be a professional? And what has to change about the way we think about work in general?

Wayne: I'm excited about speaking to Marisa and to new, diverse and interesting voices from around the world about what it means to lead and work in a long-distance workplace. Join us for the Long-Distance Worklife brought to you by The Kevin Eikenberry Group.
