Our virtual working benchmarking survey has shown that on average people are part of around five different virtual teams.
This is a big change to the traditional way of working which focused on one primary team, and working within our function and location. Personal effectiveness in this more complex environment demands new skills.
Global Integration has been running remote and virtual working and teams training since 1994, when we ran the world’s first virtual team training course. A lot has changed since then, but our programs are fundamentally adapted to this virtual world – not a traditional training program with an added slide on e-mails. We offer training specifically for people who are leading or working in virtual teams.
- leading the transformation – consulting, coaching and support in how to communicate, role model and lead the change to virtual working
- building capability – building the skills and people capability needed to lead and succeed in a virtual working environment, face-to-face, through webinar, online or blended.
- embedding new ways of working – change programs to introduce new ways of virtual working in areas like meetings, travel and decision-making at scale across the organization
