Managing Teams With Virtual Employees 2-hour online session
Virtual Team-building is skyrocketing! As many as 50% of all employees may now be working virtually. Getting this right is important to your business. Despite the increasing trend in virtual working, the majority of virtual teams will suffer some form of performance failure.
How to Optimize Virtual Team Meetings 2-hour online session
Virtual meetings are the new normal, yet we hear the same challenges over and over again: late starts, later finishes, private agendas, loss of control by the meeting facilitator, and multitasking by disengaged attendees. These common problems cost your organization lost productivity, missed deadlines, and potentially thousands of dollars due to a poorly run virtual meeting.
In a virtual team setting it is critical to have guidelines for how your team is going to work together. These guidelines are called a “Team Operating Agreement”. A Team Operating Agreement defines the set of behavioural norms that the team commits and agrees to abide by.
Fostering Virtual Collaboration and Innovation 2-hour online session 2-hour online session

In this session, you will learn how to collaborate and innovate at a distance providing you with practical tools that you can apply immediately.
Better Communication and Collaboration using the DiSC Behavioral Profile 2-hour online session
