It's a time of corporate belt-tightening. People are traveling less, and meeting less frequently with their fellow team members and leaders. Virtual teams are already a fact of the global marketplace as companies leverage global talent, and technology facilitates better communication. This trend is on the rise as travel restrictions complicate face-to face interaction.
You will examine what it takes to lead and work with distanced teams. The program draws from recent research to identify the necessary skills members of virtual teams need for creating successful teams. A two-stage model of distance leadership is introduced that teaches participants how to more effectively work with, and lead, teams that work far apart.
