About the webinar

Most of the workforce is now shifting to the virtual office. For many team leaders, the virtual workplace is relatively unknown and the sudden shift has prompted questions like:

My team has lost productivity but I’m not doing anything different, why? What can I do to keep my team motivated?

Is there a ‘right’ way to have difficult conversations in a virtual environment?

What leadership qualities make a virtual team work?

Explore the fundamental characteristics of great virtual teams and their leaders, and join Leadership Speaker & Trainer Sarah Cole as she demonstrates how participants can cultivate these within their own team.

This practical webinar has been developed for any team leader wanting to identify the challenges of virtual teams, enhance their leadership skills and ultimately, create an instant improvement in their own team’s productivity and success.

Without informal opportunities to collaborate or those casual coffee breaks found in a physical workplace, it is much harder for team leaders to build trust, engagement and common purpose. This webinar explains why team engagement is integral for successful teams, how to transform those face-to-face moments to the online, and the most efficient way team leaders can improve their virtual team: through communication transformation.
