Description
Virtual Teams have transformed the workplace. Today, the Virtual Team (VT) is an increasingly common alternative to the traditional work group, and with colleagues located cities – or oceans – apart. The lack of personal interaction creates new issues, even when technology facilitates the flow of data across time zones. Join Yael Zofi, author of A Manager's Guide to Virtual Teams, for this informative one hour free webcast.

Perhaps the most critical challenge is the difficulty in maintaining context communication, those subtle cues that give us information about the work environment. Technology is a great enabler, offering many ways to make work processes more efficient, but without the human connection, VTs cannot work to their full potential. Connection is the lifeblood of organizations, and the ‘human connection’ is critical to achieving optimum performance. The virtual world offers little context, which calls for creative ways to enable a rich path of information exchange to overcome time zones and vast physical boundaries.

In this session you will learn how to achieve context communication in the virtual workplace. Common challenges like keeping team members engaged, bringing ‘lost riders’ into the fold and avoiding excessive multitasking will be addressed through scenarios and case studies. Takeaways featuring effective techniques for written, voice and virtual in person connection are practical and simple to implement.

With the tools and techniques that we will share, you will find the rhythm to enable the communication in your VT to flow across location, through technological modes, to produce high quality deliverables for your organization.

Learning Objectives:
•       Identify the four key elements of successful virtual team performance and learn helpful tips to overcome relationship challenges in the virtual environment.
•       Maximize team participation during video or web conferences and adapt proven human connection processes to effectively address context communication in the virtual world.
•       Discover valuable techniques to communicate effectively and engage 'lost riders' and 'silent riders' and come up with an action plan to connect your virtual participants.
