What You’ll Learn

When we have team members working virtually, it can seem like we don’t have instant access to individuals daily. This is really a misperception on our part because technology makes it easy to communicate with people anytime, anywhere. The trick is, to make sure the communication is clear and is received.

In this two-session course, leaders of virtual teams will build on skills to create connections through engaging meetings. Earn the confidence of the team through effective communication that builds trust, credibility, and respect. Employ tools to gain collaboration, mediate conflict, and coach in a virtual environment.  Develop a leadership plan that results in gaining commitment from the team.

Session One Focus:

-Increase engagement in your virtual team

-Build trust and camaraderie across the distance

-Use energizers and activities for teambuilding

 

Session Two Focus:

-Overcome barriers to virtual communication

-Resolve conflict and foster a supportive environment

-Coach for performance improvement

 

The course also addresses the important factor of technology. The Dale Carnegie team will be demonstrating a variety of tools and techniques that you can use to manage the people side of your virtual team. Technology is always changing and expanding; once you have the human side developed, you can adjust to the technology.

 

Course Objectives

Leading Virtual Teams equips you to:

1. Create a virtual team community based on relationships and camaraderie.

2. Establish clear team expectations based on mutual trust and respect.

3. Communicate effectively and use technology that fits the situation. 

4. Identify ways to foster an environment of virtual teamwork, group effort, and cooperation. 

Why you want to learn it

Rapid advances increase the tools and technologies that virtual teams can use to communicate and collaborate in real-time. Some of these tools include web conferencing, file sharing, and document collaboration. These methods can simulate a face-to-face environment, allowing group brainstorming, planning, and true synchronous collaboration.

Leaders of virtual teams will be inspired to take deliberate actions to overcome the challenges of virtual working. This course will motivate and assist you in taking those intentional actions to achieve results.

 

What You Can Expect During the Course

Discover: Discover your unique strengths as a leader and develop additional tools that will help you achieve the skills and characteristics that can push you to your next level of success as a leader in your organization.

Supportive Environment: Each time a new tool is introduced, it is practiced the ‘right’ way and coached in the moment before moving it out into your work. Once a tool has been tested with team members and others, the group holds itself accountable by reporting back on what did or did not work. This fascinating approach makes it possible for everyone to learn from each other’s efforts. By experiencing a series of successful attempts with positive reinforcement, habits are changed, and new skills are ingrained.

Expect Thoroughly Trained Trainers: Dale Carnegie trainers are highly vetted and undergo intense training that is ISO9002 certified to achieve consistent results globally. While part of a global organization, they are connected to your local culture, customs and language. As a bonus, all Dale Carnegie Trainers have “walked the talk” in their efforts to achieve work/life balance and reduce their stress levels.

How it will help you

Use your new skills to achieve measurable results, securing your place as a valued contributor. As you develop your leadership abilities in a virtual space, you’ll find yourself inspiring your team to additional connection, collaboration, and commitment.
