The new challenge is called “Working together apart”.
What can you expect from our Leading and Working in Virtual Teams training?
Employees and management are increasingly faced with the task of working in or leading remote teams, across distance, in different time zones and outside of the usual organisational framework.
In this seminar you will find out what makes a virtual team successful. You will analyse the effective use and purpose of virtual teamwork, the impact of different communication channels like telephone conferences, online-meetings and e-mails, and the appropriate media for various work situations. Furthermore will you discover helpful strategies for the development and maintenance of trusting working relationships with your relevant cultures over distance.
The focus of the training is:
- From the vision to the result in the virtual team

It’s here! Our new book:
Virtually Disastrous: What you really need to know about
leadership across distance
How do you lead virtual teams to high performance?
Globalisation is here to stay – yet no one is really prepared. Many teams tasked with managing globalisation are clearly out of their depth. This is primarily because these teams work virtually and internationally over great distances. The team members no longer sit face to face in their offices, instead they communicate across countries and continents via modern communication media.
Leading a conventional team to top performance is difficult enough, not least because of the inevitable group dynamic involved. When the context becomes virtual, this all too often leads to management failure. This book describes in an entertaining style the art of leading virtual teams including practical tips, helpful suggestions, and numerous illustrative examples that span many industries and countries along the four core challenges of virtual team leadership today.
