Leading in a Virtual Environment

Trust and Communication Drive Success

Leadership is hard enough. Virtual team leadership from afar poses unique challenges beyond the obvious global business communication logistics such as juggling time zones. It requires specific strategies for building trust, establishing comfortable, effective working relationships, staying abreast of work projects and avoiding the common global business communication missteps associated with email and voice mail. Leading in a Virtual Environment is an interactive global leadership development program that applies critical management fundamentals, tools and strategies to actual virtual leadership situations.
