Succeeding on Virtual Teams

Group Training + View more dates & times


Today’s organizational landscape has shifted and the global economy has prompted businesses to change how they work. As individual contributors on teams, it’s essential to embrace tele-work and virtual collaboration as an essential way to provide value in the support of team success and organizational goals. As such, we must reframe our thinking about technology as not just a tool for communication, but also as a tool to practice effective teaming. This course is for team members and team leads. It focuses on strategies that lay the foundation for success when geographical separation is a part of the work-scape. Participants learn how to overcome the challenges associated with time zones, culture, and comradery. They also learn how to effectively use and engage in the communication and technological processes necessary for reaching high performance and driving virtual team success.
