Electronic Engagement: A Key Competency for Virtual Leadership


Led by Stefanie Heiter of Bridging Distance

Many leaders working in a virtual environment miss core elements of electronic engagement that would enable their employees and teams to ‘hum’. The response to this is often to find a technology solution. Yet, while the right technology is critical, it is only part of what is needed; people must still be motivated to use that technology to foster digital cohesiveness. This means that a virtual leader successfully utilizes collaboration tools as platforms for interacting and conducting the business of individual and team performance management. Bring your questions, challenges, and stories to an interactive session based on evidence-based tips and tools for helping people engage well from everywhere.


Objectives of the Learning Webinar:

1. Define virtual leadership, especially in comparison with in person leadership

2. Explain the challenges of leading over distance

3. Learn about The Distance Lens and a model for effective virtual leadership

4. Discuss core components of the Electronic Engagement dimension of the model
