“Each customized remote and virtual team training program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields.

On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these virtual workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company.

The work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.”

“The Global, Remote and Virtual Team Training program was extremely valuable. Your consultant’s fundamental knowledge of Synopsys as a company provided an incredible base to build upon while tackling the complications of managing and working with globally distributed teams.

My team walked away walked away with highly useful practices and tools. It was just excellent.”

Description
Teams that work together at the same location face challenges in their day-to-day interactions. A team with virtual or remote members makes for an even tougher situation.

Time zones, lack of face-to-face interaction, conflicting priorities, travel budget restrictions, and cultural differences all impede effectiveness. Team members complain of isolation, e-mail going into a black hole, headquarters vs. non-headquarters tension, and recurrent miscommunication, which results in decreased productivity and missed deadlines.

This three-hour to one-day customized virtual teams workshop develops the skills and knowledge needed for building successful virtual teams.

Topics
How to:

  • Communicate critical information clearly
  • Use technology to improve efficiency
  • Avoid typical pitfalls of remote and virtual teams
  • Build trust on the telephone and over videoconferencing
  • Handle global and remote challenges
  • Avoid cultural misunderstandings or offending others
  • Accomplish time-driven goals at a distance

Upon completion of this customized virtual team training program, participants will be able to:

  1. Increase the success of the team
  2. Understand the impact of culture on a global team
  3. Define specific roles and assumptions of team members
  4. Use effective communication techniques
  5. Build rapport and a sense of group purpose
  6. Be alert to unspoken issues

Target Audience
Individuals who work on virtual, remote, or global teams that want to succeed.
