Program Summary and Coverage:

With the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the world of work is moving towards becoming more and more virtual.  Today the Organizations are willing to continue the virtual workplace model since it has many significant benefits. The team members in a virtual team can be from various detached locations, yet they need to be connected through communication technologies.  This gives rise to its own unique set of challenges. Establishing trust, ensuring collaboration, instilling ownership and accountability as well as making the geographically-dispersed team members feel a part of a single ‘team’ are some of the major concerns and challenges. Until and unless these challenges receive considerable attention and duly addressed, the virtual teams may not be able to give the intended results.

In the timely delivery of those intended results, the preparedness and the competencies of the managers or the leaders that lead the teams play a pivotal role This four-day training program is designed to exactly do that – prepare current and future leaders to manage their teams effectively even in the virtual mode.
