Many projects are now ‘virtual’, i.e. some or all of the team are located remotely and maybe working in different time zones. The project manager needs all the traditional soft skills and more.

Managing a Virtual Team Training Materials

Managing Virtual Teams has become a hot topic over the last few years. People are now much more likely to work from home, from their car, at alternative locations, or even on the other side of the world, which means managers might rarely see them. Consequently, managers that are asked to lead these virtual teams not only face the usual leadership dilemmas, they also have to be able to adapt to these challenges in an environment where the rules have changed. Managing virtual teams requires a different approach. It means developing new skills, communication methodologies and techniques to get the best out of teams and improve organisational and personal performance. Perhaps you’ve always had virtual teams and you want to make your managers more effective. Or you want to refocus existing teams by developing your management team skills. Whatever your need, Trainer Bubble provides you with a comprehensive training course on managing a virtual team that will make your life easy.

  • Increase their teams' performance through clear goal-setting and communication.
  • Improve the effective use of technology within the organisation.
  • Develop trusting relationships that ensure the teamwork towards common goals.
