Training Course Syllabus:

Managing a Virtual Team - Off-Site / Long Distance Training Seminar

Program Description:

The Virtual Workplace Is Here. It Requires a Whole New Set of Skills for Managers.

You can’t manage employees who work remotely the same way you manage those you see in the workplace every day. You don’t have the same amount of face-to-face time with them. Opportunities for informal one-on-ones in the break room or hallways are nonexistent.

Email and phone communication pales in effectiveness compared with live human interaction, and while videoconferencing is getting better and better every day, even it has its limitations. Plus, how do you know employees are working diligently when you can’t see them?

We already know we’re not telling you anything new here. Managing a team that’s either completely or partially off-site has its challenges, and it’s your job to rise to those challenges. That has been difficult, but it’s much easier now. Why? Because our new one-day seminar, Managing a Virtual Team, is packed with all the how-to techniques you need to keep your off-site employees energized, productive, and fully integrated into the team.

When it comes down to it, the human side of management has always been and will always be the most important part of your job. It’s not easy when employees work remotely — but it can be done. This training is THE best and easiest way to become a master at managing a virtual team.
