Seven Things Every Leader Should Know About Virtual Teams Leaders with Lee Johnsen
• By 2015, 40% of the world’s workforce will be remote.
• By 2020, 62% of employees are expected to work in virtual teams.
• 86% of people in a recent survey said that the engagement (level of trust, frequency of communication, and level of positive relationships) is important to their virtual team.
Yet many virtual teams struggle to reach high performance and high levels of engagement among their members. Is your virtual team facing some of these same hurdles? How prepared are you to lead them?
Fact: Virtual teams are decidedly different from their more traditional counterparts. What’s a leader to do?
Join us for a lively, interactive discussion about what differentiates a virtual team from an “onsite” team (The answers may surprise you.) and the differences among the different types of virtual teams.
As a member, leader, or consultant of a virtual team, you will leave this session with:
1. At least seven key points that will help your virtual team to be more effective.
2. A template to diagnose the four “team types” based on complexity and reliance.
3. A summary of the Critical Success Components of Virtual Teams and how they relate to your organization.
4. The means to communicate some of the key challenges facing your virtual teams.
Included in this session will be survey results from session participants that answer your specific questions and provide real-time data about your virtual teams.
