Course description

Virtual Team Leadership

Leading a team whose members are geographically distributed calls for a special set of skills and know-how. Among the recurring challenges virtual team leaders struggle with are: building trust across time and distance, cultivating strong working relationships, creating a level playing field among all team members, managing performance from afar, galvanizing and mobilizing team members to achieve shared goals, and keeping team members actively engaged amidst competing priorities.

In this highly interactive virtual workshop series, we use a case study as a springboard for discussion, using a combination of audioconferencing and an online meeting room to foster active engagement and capture ideas as they emerge. We modify the emphasis of each module based on participants’ responses to prework.

Who should attend?

This workshop series is intended for individuals who lead distributed teams, whether their members include direct reports, project teams, extended teams, or other stakeholders. This workshop series is designed for a cohort of up to 15 participants to encourage questions, examples, and sharing of knowledge and experience.
