Overcoming Workplace Negativity with Enthusiasm
(02:00 PM - 05:00 PM)
Negative attitudes spread to the point where they eventually affect performance and decision-making. That's the bad news. The good news is that enthusiasm and positive attitudes spread just as quickly and affect performance just as much -- in the right direction.
Leading Virtual Teams
(10:00 AM - 01:00 PM)
Several factors have led to the emergence of a new form of team working. As Virtual Private Networks, Wi-Fi, and low-cost communication methods such as instant messaging and video chat become more reliable and commonplace, home-working and teleworking become an option for many teams. This option has provided organizations with numerous economic alternatives to the traditional face-to-face team structure.
Overall, virtual teams are very similar to traditional teams. However, communication and team building occur more naturally in face-to-face teams. Because of this, leaders of virtual teams should take deliberate actions to build in activities and practices that are vital to team success. This program will help equip leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead virtual teams to new levels of effectiveness.
