March 17, 2010 by Phil Montero
Hello Folks – I am going to be a panelist on a virtual event next Monday (the event described below) and the hosts have provided me with 2 free tickets to give away. So if you are interested in attending the Building and Managing Effective Virtual Teams vpanel, put your name into the hat to win a free ticket by using the comments section below this post to contribute a favorite or poignant quotation about any aspect of virtual work. It can be a famous quote, or something you heard, or a quote of your own.
You only have a couple of days, on Friday afternoon I will select 2 names at random from the contributors to each receive a free pass. I will not choose based on the ‘best’ quotes, and you only have 2 days, so don’t be shy. Just a fun way to get some food for thought and give away the tickets.
To get the wheel turning I am going to offer a great quote that I believe relates to virtual teams, and in managing virtual workers in particular:
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
and Jason wants to share one of his favorites and a classic mobile work/telework quote:
“Work is something you do, not some place you go.” ~ Unknown
Now it’s your turn. Learn more about the vpanel below and contribute a quote in the comments section of this post.
Here is some info about the event:
