How to Lead in a Collaborative Virtual Environment | Recorded Webinar

HRDQ-U - Communication

60 minutes

If these you face some of the following dilemmas: geographic dispersion, remote locations, no face-to-face contact, dual reporting, or accountability and responsibility without direct authority, then this webinar is for you.

How to Lead in a Collaborative, Virtual Environment focuses the competencies and capabilities needed to manage others in global, virtual, and matrixed organizational environments. In today’s world of virtual teams and geographically remote execution you’re only as good – or effective – as your network. So what is needed to execute work effectively in your series of interconnected, virtual “webs”?

In this webinar you will learn the skills and competencies required to influence and persuade others to mutually beneficial outcomes, create and maintain connectedness with people that you have either never met or have infrequent contact, and “manage” individuals with whom you may have no direct control.

Attendees will learn

  • Balance the competencies required in traditional management with the competencies required to be effective in matrixed, virtual settings
  • Compare the decision-making criteria required in management hierarchies with those required to be effective in a remote management and participation role
  • Define the role set or network needed to operate from in order to be successful in a virtual environment
  • Optimize remote location execution, participation, and productivity

Who should attend

  • Managers and supervisors
  • HR personnel
  • Any remote employee who works on a team
