Open Training Program – Managing Virtual Teams
Managing Virtual Teams has become a hot topic over the last few years. People are now much more likely to work from home, from their car, at alternative locations, or even on the other side of the world, which means managers might rarely see them.
Consequently, managers that are asked to lead these virtual teams not only face the usual leadership dilemmas, they also have to be able to adapt to these challenges in an environment where the rules have changed. Managing virtual teams requires a different approach. It means developing new skills, communication methodologies and techniques to get the best out of teams and improve organisational and personal performance.
The main goal of the Managing Virtual Teams training session is to train participants on managing a virtual team that is more motivated, inspired and productive.
This course is valuable for anyone that manages or leads people in a remote or virtual environment. The course would suit people managing teams that work from home, at various locations or any other situation where the team are not based in the same place from day to day.
By the end of this course, the participants will be able to:
- inspire their virtual teams, bringing out the best in each and every individual
- overcome the barriers and isolation that working remotely can cause
- develop a virtual team that works collaboratively and with the interests of the organisation at heart
- increase their teams performance though clear goal setting and communication
- track progress and performance management of team members to achieve success
