Leading virtual teams

As the leader of a virtual team, it is necessary to have a basic trust in the willingness of the employees to perform and also to give them the freedom to decide for themselves how to do the work at hand. At the same time, the manager is required to define the framework of cooperation together with the team. This includes, for example, regular communication and how to deal with ad hoc requests.

TRAINING DESCRIPTION

In this training we look at different cooperation settings and the demands they make on leadership. We examine the three perspectives: information transfer, synchronisation and joint processing of tasks between manager and team.

In addition, we also deal with the four-eye communication between manager and employee, which takes place in the same way in a virtual context and is of great importance in order not to neglect the social aspects of cooperation.

Virtual meetings are an essential tool in virtual collaboration and leadership. We have made the experience that meetings become quite lengthy if verbal exchange is the only option. We therefore recommend that you become well acquainted with the features that virtual meeting tools offer and also use them selectively for “quick” feedback.
