Communication is always critical for an organization, but a remote workforce requires even greater focus on ensuring that individuals know both how, when and with whom to communicate. Whether it is negotiating conflicts, identifying bottlenecks or sharing data, firms must understand what strategies, tools and processes ensure a smooth transition to going virtual.
One of the biggest challenges of moving to a remote team is holding individuals and teams accountable and ensuring full transparency. Participants will learn best practices for using technologies and processes to ensure that teams and individuals drive measurable outcomes that drive profit to the bottom line.
As organizations go virtual, teams become more diverse and multicultural. This brings both opportunities and challenges. This program will identify those opportunities and challenges and participants will learn strategies for managing cultural issues and best practices for improving a team's cultural intelligence. Increased cultural sensitivity will help teams increase productivity and expand their effectiveness.
