Virtual Teams: Developing Long Distance Relationships

Virtual Teams: Developing Long Distance Relationships
Do you recognize these challenges?
  • Feeling isolated from a leader who is in a different time zone?
  • Feeling out of touch with team members you have never met?
  • Feeling hesitant to disagree during a team conference call because you aren't sure your point of view will be valued?
  • Not really knowing if a team member will follow through on a commitment?
It is normal for virtual team members to feel isolated and uneasy. However, savvy team members recognize that success in a global environment is the key to future opportunities and career growth. Successful team members know that being great in this environment requires constant focus and disciplined practices.

In this webinar, virtual teams' expert Carmela Southers will share the five practices that blend relationships and productivity to guarantee success.

Practice 1: Communicate about Needs
Practice 2: Encourage Healthy Conflict
Practice 3: Be Fully Present
Practice 4: Build Trust with Every Action
Practice 5: Use Technology to Build Relationships

With today's technology, the real challenge in virtual teamwork lies in the human relationships-the ability to engage hearts and minds with little to no face-to-face interaction with other team members. Don't miss this opportunity to start building those relationships with the people you work with.
