Managing a Virtual Team

One Day – £830 + VAT

Managing Virtual Teams has become a hot topic over the last few years. People are now much more likely to work from home, from their car, at alternative locations, or even on the other side of the world, which means managers might rarely see them.

Consequently, managers that are asked to lead these virtual teams not only face the usual leadership dilemmas, they also have to be able to adapt to these challenges in an environment where the rules have changed.

Managing virtual teams requires a different approach. It means developing new skills, communication methodologies and techniques to get the best out of teams and improve organisational and personal performance.

Perhaps you’ve always had virtual teams and you want to make your managers more effective. Or you want to refocus existing teams by developing your management team skills. Anyone that manages or leads people in a remote or virtual environment would benefit from the training programme. It would suit people managing teams that work from home, on the road, at various locations or any other situation where the team are not based in the same place from day to day.
