Improving the Performance of your Virtual Team

Managing Virtual Teams Workshop

Training for Managers of Virtual Teams

Most organisations have, over the last ten years, re-engineered themselves to increase their focus on customer related activities and reduce operational costs.

Flattening management structures resulting in managers at all levels leading not only larger teams but virtual teams geographically dispersed across a country, EMEA and or Worldwide.

Companies have readily adapted to the major technology advancements which now enable their employees to work anywhere at any time.

However there has been an assumption that management skills to lead and motivate remote teams are the same as those needed within a co-located team.

This has left many managers struggling to adapt to the requirements of virtual work teams often leaving employees confused and isolated not knowing exactly what is expected of them.
Virtual teams are often are not operating at the optimum performance levels needed to survive in today’s business climate.
