Description: 

Remote work – or virtual work – has been called the biggest driver of transformation in the workplace. If you are on a virtual team, you probably agree! Virtual work teams have very different needs than teams who work in the same location.

 

In order to realize the many benefits of virtual teams – a nimble, highly productive work environment, great flexibility, lower operational costs, increased diversity, global reach – you need to understand the challenges and solutions unique to virtual teams.

 

Powers Resource Center is the industry expert on this topic. Its principal, Tara Powers, is the foremost thought leader on virtual team best practices and she has been training virtual teams for many years. She is the author of the book ‘Virtual Teams for Dummies’ published by Wiley in 2018.

This course will transform your virtual team into a highly productive, collaborative and successful team in your organization. The course will start by identifying the top 10 predictors of virtual team success. Following that, you and your virtual teammates will be trained on the 6C strategies to address the challenges facing virtual teams:

  • How to focus on clarity as the foundation of a strong virtual team

 

  • How to instill a sense of team through building trust, collaboration and connection

 

  • How to implement training around collaborative technology that keeps your team engaged and connected
  • How to prepare managers to lead a team they’ve never met face-to-face

 

  • How to utilize communication and feedback to ensure all team members are accountable, responsive and actively working to support the team and its goals

 

  • Identify options for addressing conflicts, solving problems, and building consensus

In between sessions, teams will apply what they have learned to build agreements and processes that keep the team informed, engaged and establish new levels of trust and connection.
