Lead virtual teams successfully

Collaboration in virtual teams, i.e. those based across several locations, can have considerable advantages. In order to truly benefit, suitable conditions must be provided or created in terms of leadership, self-management, communication and infrastructure. Less personal contact increases the demands made of leaders and team members. In multi-national teams, other challenges arise from language barriers, cultural differences and collaboration across several time zones.

In this training session, team leaders learn to successively deal with the challenges of leading at a distance. By making a comparison with traditional teams, they can understand the specific demands of a virtual team in terms of leadership, communication and trust and are in a position to do justice to these demands. They receive feedback and can profit from the experiences of other team leaders.
