Virtual Teams (1-day)

Teaming for innovation and growth


As more organizations work virtually, managers of traditional work teams are leading across locations, functions, cultures, and time zones. Managers and team members require different skill sets to capitalize on the unique opportunities that virtual teams can bring to an organization.

In this one-day, action-learning workshop, you will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully lead virtual teams. You will leave with a pragmatic set of tools and strategies to improve performance, engagement, innovation, sharing, and intercultural behaviour. You will gain access to a set of strategies that will determine the actions you need to take in your unique context.
