Leading Virtual Teams & Flexible Work Environment

Organizations are increasingly structuring teams that reside in different parts of the country or world, and who must collaborate virtually. Even when team members are in the same city, employees often work remotely or have different work arrangements, which results in less and less face time together. Managers and leaders must be able to adapt their leadership style to ensure they can engage and motivate team members in remote locations and different work environments. This requires a different type of leadership style and advanced skill sets. Leaders need to be able to provide direction, manage performance and ensure alignment of all team members.

This workshop helps managers lead their virtual teams. We explore the advantages and challenges of virtual teams, and how high performing remote teams function successful. We also discuss how to best communicate using the appropriate technology to increase team engagement and collaboration. Leaders work on building an engagement plan for their virtual / remote team.

Audience: team leaders, supervisors, managers
