As organizations and projects become more global, it is increasingly common for team members to work in different locations. The challenges associated with working across distances can be very different from situations where all team members are at the same location. Establishing common goals, addressing effective communication, creating effective teamwork and taking into account cultural and time zone differences are all important for success. This webinar addresses key principles that increase the likelihood of personal and project success when team members are located in different places. These principles address personal behaviors, organization, leadership, and cultural issues. The webinar will use examples of good and bad practices for virtual teams to illustrate the proper application of these principles.
Whether you are a team member or leader of a team with members in different locations, this webinar will help you to be more effective. This webinar provides you with practical principles that can be applied to increase the success of virtual teams. It applies to industry, academic, and government sectors.
