Managing a virtual team involves all the usual challenges for people/project managers, plus additional considerations unique to the environment. This online, instructor-led workshop will help new or experienced managers keep virtual teams engaged and productive. Topics include establishing effective processes and systems, performance monitoring and accountability, modeling effective communication and building a sense of inclusion and trust.
Virtual teams can match and exceed the performance of co-located teams, but it requires all members to have the right skills and mindset. In this online, instructor-led workshop, virtual team members will learn how to stay focused, productive and connected to teammates. Specifically, we will discuss communication skills, self-discipline, time management, how to leverage popular virtual work platforms and tools, taking ownership of assignments and more.
Virtual work can help organizations improve productivity, recruit top talent and reduce overhead, but it takes the right strategies and support from leadership. In this seminar, we will discuss the cultural, process and technological implications of virtual work at a strategic level, and how leaders can make the right investments, develop appropriate policies and set the vision to help virtual and hybrid workforces thrive.
Virtual work can help an organization recruit top talent, track performance and improve morale — but it also requires some changes to HR. This workshop will discuss how to recruit virtual workers and provide them with meaningful opportunities to develop and grow their careers, how to create effective virtual work policies and how issues such as training, regulatory compliance, diversity and anti-harassment policies play out in a virtual environment.
When an organization decides to go virtual, the department most directly impacted is IT. In this workshop, we will review the competencies required for IT to support virtual teams, how to integrate next-generation tools and cloud apps with existing technology stacks and how to balance the need for security and audit compliance with the desire for flexibility and speed. We will also discuss how to work effectively as a virtual IT team.
