Remote & Virtual Teams training tailored to the needs of your specific teams and delivered face-to-face or virtually.

Working across distance, cultures, time zones, through technology and across organizational boundaries. Each type of virtual team has its own specific challenges.

We developed the world’s first virtual teams training more than 30 years ago and can put together a program specific to the challenges of your virtual team, not just a “one size fits all” solution.

Common challenges include:

  • Streamlining cooperation – simpler ways of working and effective virtual meetings
  • Creating a communication cadence that engages team members when communicating through technology
  • Creating trust remotely and balancing trust, empowerment and control
  • Building community and staying visibility remotely
  • Balancing productivity with sustainable wellbeing and resilience for our people
  • Staying creative when working remotely

If your virtual team includes home based people, please see more about our specific training for individuals and managers working from home.

Even before COVID 19, 84% of managers and professionals worked in virtual teams at least part of the time. Virtual working is sure to increase further.

Well managed virtual teams can be up to 40% more productive than co-located teams – but only if they adapt their ways of working to their virtual challenges.
