Webinar: Leading Virtual Teams from Global to Teleworking

More teams are operating virtually and the degree of virtual working could encompass a team that is spread across the globe. A number of issues become predominant for the manager in this setting. These include: managing the “them” and “us” syndrome amongst dispersed team members; motivating an individual that operates remotely from other members; creating a sense of team unity and identity; and understanding the range of national cultures that shape local individual decision making. By creating a collaborative environment, dispersed team members are encouraged to capture and share knowledge that aims at both the team and the organization’s institutional memory.
