This session focuses on solutions to the unique issues you face in the virtual workspace.
Virtual work is being embraced by organizations at an unprecedented rate. Fueled by technology and globalization, innovative and alternative practices help save costs, improve job satisfaction and boost productivity. Good news, to be sure, yet a change to these work arrangements come with their own great challenge - how do you keep the human connection alive? Without the benefit of face-to-face contact virtual managers must create productive work relationships and develop trust across cultures. Not easy, given issues related to distance, time and space. And yet, some virtual teams (VTs) function more effectively than others. As a partner in helping your organization achieve its goals how can you integrate VTs and their benefits into your strategic plan? How do you successfully facilitate a change to this type of work arrangement and its many complex facets? What techniques and best practices can you implement to ensure that your virtual team achieves business success?
This session focuses on solutions to the unique issues you face in the virtual workspace. Drawing from 20+ years of coaching global teams, as well as 150+ interviews, Yael Zofi will share trends and conclusions about how to effectively manage VTs. These practical tips will help the next generation of leaders bridge the gap between a culturally diverse and dispersed workforce to create the vital human connection in a virtual world.
