What's the course about?

Leading Virtual Teams

Why do we need to work in the same building? That’s the question many companies now ask. The use of virtual workers is exploding in popularity. And the potential benefits are clear. Workers gain a better work/life balance, while having the freedom to do great work. And employers reduce their overheads, while creating a happier, more productive workforce.

Which all sounds great. But it’s easy to get it wrong. Managing a virtual team comes with a unique set of challenges. The biggest of which is not dealing with the physical distance between your team, but to reduce the psychological distance between everyone.

Who is it for?

This course is perfect for anyone who has to manage a team that works in different locations or over different shift patterns. This might include:

  • Employees working from home
  • Sales reps constantly on the road
  • Management teams in multi-office locations
  • Project development teams not sat together
  • And offshore teams​

  • Five interactive modules
  • Blending text, graphics, images and videos
