My team walked away walked away with highly useful practices and tools. It was an excellent use of our time.”

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.

In my years working with LSA, it seems like I’ve had a personal consultant at my fingertips to help me identify just the right solution to satisfy our needs. The entire LSA team has become a trusted friend of Actel — assuring we provide state-of-the-art learning to meet our complex, high-tech business and people needs.

Linda Mitchell

I had been working with LSA for many years with my prior company. Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much basic management skills training. After identifying and presenting a program recently, our managers are excited and talking in the halls about the great experience. LSA saves us time in delivering the right training for our needs.

A key to performance improvement is strongly linked to cultivating the proper type of motivation. Since the performance management training, I have been much more focused on identifying and discussing how our actions in Engineering create value to IGT’s success. So far, the feedback has been positive. The group appears to be more accountable for their actions, and victim loop reactions are less frequent. The value proposition for me and those groups we work with is better teamwork, higher spirits, and a better outlook for things to come in the future (renewed enthusiasm).

We gave LSA a very short deadline to customize an important management training program to meet our unique requirements.   Their facilitator was an expert in the subject matter and very credible.  The design provided practical and valuable information to our managers. I highly recommend LSA Global, particularly in the area of management training.

What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from training and consulting organizations. LSA gives you the practical and results-oriented assistance you need to define and reach your goals.  They provide a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”

David Fiano

Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.

Frank Abbott

We recently partnered with LSA Global to offer our Supervisors and Managers a customized two-day experiential management training program. Everyone said it was by far the best management training program they had ever attended. The content was rich and highly interactive, and the case studies were highly relevant to our unique situation. Each participant walked away much better equipped to lead their teams.  Thank you LSA!
