Management & Leadership Seminars

The Virtual Leader: Developing & Leading Teams

The Course

Managers today often find themselves balancing the need for getting the job done quickly, perhaps with fewer people, with the need for building working relationships that span barriers of time, distance, and culture, to name just a few. For many managers, this is unfamiliar territory that requires a new way of thinking about how to lead people. If this situation sounds familiar, this workshop is for you.

The workshop builds skills in two areas vital to the success of a virtual team: distance management and team leadership. By combining theory with experiential exercises, participants develop the skills required to meet the demands of the constantly changing global work environment.
