How to Effectively Lead Virtual Team Meetings
June 23, 2011
1:00pm – 2:30pm EDT
As travel costs skyrocket and budgets are slashed, virtual teams are becoming a fact of life for many managers.
When you are called upon to lead a virtual team, you face challenges that traditional management techniques can’t always solve. Foremost among these is conducting team meetings that occur without the benefit of face-to-face interaction.
This Webinar focuses on solutions to the unique issues you face when meeting with team members in a virtual workspace, whether it be multisite, multicountry, multitime-zone, or all of the above.
To effectively engage a virtual team and lead them to high performance, both team leaders and members need to equip themselves with the right skills and tools. This program is designed to give the entire team effective tools to conduct virtual team meetings, build team interaction, and improve virtual team dynamics.
