CPD-0225 – Leading Virtual Teams (CPD-0225_LEADVIR)

Leading Virtual Teams

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, working virtually has quickly become today’s “normal.” However, as creatures of habit, employees quickly try to “settle in” to working from home and recreate what they know from the traditional office environment. Remote work fundamentally changes the relationship people have with their teammates and employers, providing an opportunity to recreate and improve our processes in order to thrive in the virtual workplace.

This new normal provides leaders with opportunities to empower their teams to higher levels of performance, collaboration, and action. This course will provide attendees the basic knowledge to become more effective virtual managers who can develop and support productive team communities that work across geography and time zones. Join master teacher and virtual engagement expert Trina Hoefling for a crash course on leading high performance teams through and beyond today’s remote environment.
