TR: Staying visible when working remotely

Welcome to this training package from Global Integration, specialists in people management in complex, matrix, virtual and global organizations.

We have been running a questionnaire for people who work in virtual teams for the last 10 years. During this period one of the top three concerns for individuals has consistently been “how do I stay visible when I’m working remotely?”.

Visibility is important for career development, getting things done in a complex environment, attracting resources, etc. Visibility is a particular challenge in virtual teams as we may be based in multiple locations. We may be working on different priorities from the people sitting next to us and our activities are often not very visible to the people who matter to us.

In this package we will discuss why visibility is important in your organization and take you through a four stage process for managing the visibility of your virtual team.

  1. The elements of visibility
  2. The internal marketing pyramid
  3. Developing a team Brand
  4. Communicating your message

You will learn how to apply this process to improving the visibility of your team.

The output of this process should be a clear idea of the image that you want to project to the key stakeholders of your team and some ideas on how to communicate that image.

During the package you will have access to either video or podcast giving information about the concepts and a downloadable workbook with tools and exercises to work through for your team.

The content in the podcasts and videos are the same, they are provided in different formats as some countries and organizations do not allow access to YouTube, which hosts the videos. The podcasts may be listened to live on this site or downloaded to your computer or MP3 device for your personal use only.
