Leading in a Virtual World

Leading in a Virtual World
In this webinar Senior Consulting Partner Carmela Southers will show you how to avoid the traps that trip up many seasoned managers when they make the shift from leading in a face - to - face setting to leading in a virtual environment. You'll explore the challenges of:
  • Finding the right balance between "hands-off" leadership and the micromanaging that can occur when managers and direct reports don't see each other on a regular basis
  • Creating a connection between managers and direct reports without seeming too "Big Brother" or prying
  • Finding the right frequency for communication so direct reports don't feel overly inundated with emails, long conference calls, etc.
You'll learn proven strategies for leading virtually including how to:
  • Create outcome based goals that focus on "what" instead of "how"
  • Use gauges so managers and direct reports both get information about how work is progressing
  • Ask open ended questions that create a personal connection
  • Use time effectively by focusing on quality instead of quantity
Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to make your virtual workers more successful by laying the groundwork and then getting out of their way.
