Skill Level Intermediate
- A lot of managers even struggle with face-to-face management, but when you add in the complexities of virtual workplaces and remote teams, it's even harder. You can't just pop over and connect with your team. You can't look over your shoulders and answer ad hoc questions or have impromptu chats. That's all gone in a virtual workspace. As a visionary, you need to create those opportunities and change your mindset from being a manager of tasks to a leader of people. More and more people are shifting to working remotely, joining global teams, and balancing work from home with personal lives. So it's imperative that managers shift their approach to better lead the organization and their teams to success. I'm Dr. Mary Jean Vignone and I'm a leadership coach and business consultant and I've worked with many organizations from small non-profits to large corporations to help them navigate change and build more productive, high performing teams. I've managed virtual teams for nearly two decades and I can tell you that it's highly rewarding to see team members grow personally and professionally and exceed expectations in a virtual environment, but it's not easy. It takes effort and commitment to be an effective leader in a remote space. In this course, I'll teach you how to be the best virtual leader you can be. I'll show you how to build trust with your remote employees, how to use your emotional intelligence to build relationships and empower others, and to give you methods for encouraging autonomy. I will give you strategies for effective virtual communication and demonstrate how to give constructive feedback, even in digital meetings. I'll offer methods for how to develop remote employees to allow them to grow, excel, and ultimately, feel good about the work they do. I want you to be a leader of truly engaged teams, whether they are working in the same building or not. A virtual workplace can be a very enriching environment and truly rewarding for employees and leadership, but it won't happen organically. You need to create that virtual space as a leader. So if you're ready, let's get started.
