Getting Results through Virtual Teams

As organizations continue to rely on virtual workplaces and teams, managers quickly discover that leading teams with dispersed or remote team members can pose new challenges. Virtual team members often report that they enjoy the autonomy and flexibility that working from home or a remote office may offer, but they also complain that they often feel both micro-managed and isolated from other team members.

Virtual leaders must attend to relationship, reliability, results, and recognition issues as they strive to communicate clearly and build connections across virtual distance. The rewards of getting this aspect of leadership right are immeasurable, from tangible cost-savings to enhanced productivity and high levels of engagement. But these rewards only happen with committed attention and execution on the part of an organization's leaders.

About Virtual Leader™

Virtual Leader is a program specifically designed to address the skill gaps of the virtual manager. Participants focus on strengthening skills needed to build collaborative, accountable, high-performing teams in virtual environments. The companion course, Succeeding in the Virtual Workplace, helps virtual team members effectively collaborate with their manager and their colleagues.

Both the leader and team-member versions are available in two delivery options:

  • Synchronous Delivery includes five 90-minute webinars delivered either by your certified trainers or NetSpeed Learning Solutions trainers, backed by asynchronous assignments to further enhance and support the webinar content and activities.
  • Asynchronous Delivery offers the same content without the live webinar component, for teams who find it difficult to meet synchronously or who want to work through the material at their own pace. Course content is delivered on any desktop or mobile device.
