Currently, one of the biggest challenges facing virtual teams is how to successfully work within that team. Teams that are geographically dispersed and primarily meet virtually – via webcast or conference call – present new sets of challenges.
Many team members have difficulty because they cannot see what other members are doing. Even the most skilled managers find difficulty in communicating and building a team when there is no physical proximity. Mastering the art of working in virtual teams will increase your team’s productivity and performance.
People across the globe are being tasked to work collaboratively with people that they may never meet. The virtual team is here to stay, using technologies such as the internet, intranets and groupware to collaborate on projects and processes on an ever-increasing scale.
This web workshop is dedicated to equipping the virtual team member to be prepared for and to cope with the inevitable personal and work challenges that virtual working presents and understand what it takes to be a fully effective and high performing member of a virtual team.
This two x 1 hour workshop challenges Virtual Team Members to confront their assumptions, concerns and attitude to working virtually, understand the impact they have on team performance and then strengthen their contribution and effectiveness. Insights and practical tools, tips and practices tackle head on the challenges of virtual working in a pragmatic and insightful manner.
