Leading virtual and remote teams is a way of life today. Yet many organizations are still struggling to develop the skills needed to manage teams and projects when people are separated by time, space and language.
Leadership is hard enough as it is, adding the challenges of working with people at a distance and the challenges become even more daunting. This session will help separate what has changed and what hasn’t- and give you some specific tools and ideas for improving your success when leading remotely.
If you lead remote teams, or are responsible for developing the skills of your remote leaders, you need to attend this informative and fast-paced session.

- Training and Learning professionals
Participants Will Learn
