Freelance Work Specialist and Distance Team Leader
"The course provided me with just the right amount of high-level, easy-to-understand – and interesting – content"
I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in either becoming a distance worker or becoming a more effective distance leader. As an entry point to the subject, I found the course provided me with just the right amount of high-level, easy-to-understand – and interesting – content. A focus-challenged person, I found the course’s interactivity, from videos to thoughtfully-designed self-paced exercises, helped me stay engaged from beginning to end.

"I think that this course is the single best training product I have seen on the subject of distance working and leading."
I have been a distance worker, and distance leader, for most of my career. I think that this course is the single best training product I have seen on the subject of distance working and leading. It is fact-based, easy-to-understand, practical, and organized so that leaders can learn at their own pace and focus on the topics most important to them. Outstanding – and I look forward to future courses!

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

Engaging, timely tools
Our courses are designed as 50/50 courses, which means that we developed the right presentation for results. That's the first 50%. The second 50% is tailoring the course resources to work in your personal work environment.
We have carefully constructed each lesson. When you are in the lesson, you aren't overwhelmed with too much information! You can download a single workbook at the beginning of the course, or you can open each lesson's activities as you get to them in your course flow.
In every lesson, you will be able to relate to the lesson material because it was developed by someone like you: a distance leader and team member.
There's no substitute for your own experiences, and you'll find that each lesson asks you to reflect on your own path as a leader and team member.
You can apply what you learn almost immediately to your workplace... we guarantee it!

Using the Distance Work Connector(TM) model, you will forge new connections that reach your employees, enhance your own leadership styles, and protect and grow your career.
