Virtual teams work jointly at different places around the world. The team members – often with different cultural backgrounds – meet rarely in person; sometimes they only know each other from their computer screens. Even the team leader has often only little face-to-face contact with his or her team members.
What are the success factors of virtual teamwork? How can a “virtual team” achieve results as good a conventional team? How can trust be built within virtual collaboration? How a personal touch eases online communication in the absence of face-to-face contact? How to establish results-oriented collaboration? How to lead and manage a virtual team?
In an in-house training custom-fit to your needs you will enhance your competences in virtual teamwork. Hands-on simulations allow you to experience the organization and facilitation of virtual team meetings. You will be invited to ask questions and share as well as evaluate experience in an interactive exchange with the other participants. Eventually, you will receive most useful tips and tricks from our trainers.
