Sounds too good to be true? These methods were successfully used by Aflac, Applied Materials, Entergy, Honda, Jones Lang LaSalle, IBM, Reckitt, Wells Fargo, and Xerox to dramatically improve the skills of their top executives, senior VPs, middle managers, and lower-level supervisors in leading telecommuting teams. I trained the leaders at these Fortune 500 companies, as well as at numerous middle-market companies and quickly-growing startups, on virtual teams best practices. More broadly, I served for over 20 years as the CEO of the boutique future-proofing consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts. Below is a sample testimonial from a recent training.

Here’s a recent testimonial from Dan Rooney, Senior Vice President at Jones Lang LaSalle, a company ranked #186 by Fortune, speaking about the impact of my training:

  • “Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to present to our Consulting team last week. The content was spot-on and provided a unique perspective into building culture, driving innovation and brainstorming across telecommuting and hybrid teams (among other things). I appreciate your willingness to partner leading up to the presentation to ensure the content was tailored for the audience – it made the discussion that much more impactful. I have received positive feedback from a number of team members and look forward to collaborating more in the future!”

Here’s another recent testimonial by Susan Winchester, the Chief Human Resource Officer at Applied Materials, a Fortune 200 high-tech manufacturing company:

· “Hi, I’m Susan Winchester, and it’s my delight and pleasure to tell you a little bit about our experience with Dr. Gleb. He had a big positive impact at Applied Materials. Our leaders and engineers love data-based, research-based insights, which is exactly what he brings. He hit it out of the park, and he used a team led process, which was incredibly engaging. He introduced us to a concept he created called asynchronous brainstorming. It was a process we used with hundreds and hundreds of leaders globally at the same time. We did this during our CEO kickoff session for our strategy work. In a very short amount of time, we were able to get great benefits. I also love the work he’s doing to educate leaders around the power and positive benefits of hybrid and virtual working. And one of his techniques that I’m planning to use is what he calls “virtual coworking”, where you and as many coworkers as you’d like create a virtual meeting, no purpose or agenda, but rather just to be working with one another. I highly endorse Dr. Gleb’s work with leadership teams.”

Besides such real-world, pragmatic expertise, I have a strong academic background as a behavioral scientist studying virtual teams, stakeholder engagement, and related fields. I spent 8 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, first getting a PhD in the History of Behavioral Science and then serving as a lecturer there. Then, I spent 7 years as a professor at the Ohio State University, where I published dozens of peer-reviewed articles on this topic in high-quality academic journals such as Behavior and Social Issues and Journal of Social and Political Psychology. Thus, this course is thoroughly informed by cutting-edge research.

This combination of business and science led to my expertise gaining global recognition. I published over 650 articles and gave over 550 interviews to prominent venues. They include Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Fox News, USA Today, CBS News, CNBC, Time, Business Insider, Government Executive, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Inc. Magazine, and Fortune.

Further attesting to my global renown, my work was translated into Chinese, German, Russian, Korean, Polish, Spanish, French and other languages.
