Over two half-day sessions, learn how to better lead and manage remote teams.

About this Event

Virtual teams are a reality today. Most large organizations have multiple divisions and locations. Smaller companies may have team members working at different sites, and the current trend to working collaboratively with suppliers, partner organizations, and clients, gives more rise to the need to have diversely-located team members work effectively together. Add to this the growing number of people working from home and you have a situation where managers and leaders struggle with a number of obstacles:

  • How do we overcome communication barriers, especially without seeing body language and other cues?
  • How do I motivate my people who are remote?
  • How do I run effective online meetings?

In this online course conducted over two half-day sessions, we will examine the communication and team-building issues of implementing effective virtual teams, and suggest strategies, tools, and techniques to empower the project manager or business analyst to meet the challenges.

This online course will run September 14 & 15, 2020 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm Eastern (Toronto) time.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the challenges and the benefits of working in a virtual team format.
  • Select the appropriate team structure.
  • Design a communications plan for virtual teams.
  • Select appropriate facilitation tools for meetings.
  • Describe interventions to maximize the benefits and overcome the challenges of virtual teams.
  • Use appropriate team-building and motivational techniques to preserve team unity.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE

This course is ideal for managers and senior team members who are going to lead geographically-distributed teams in their work, those with staff who are now working from home, and those considering implementing virtual teams in their organization and would like to be prepared for the advantages and disadvantages of such team structures.
