Why it is so important develop new competencies for a new demanding workplace?
Leaders are confronted with sudden, acute challenges increasingly frequently in today's rapidly moving world and shifting competitive landscape. They must be prepared for a new workplace, digital transformation and the new normal (also called the “great reset”).

What is a virtual team?

A virtual team (also known as a remote team or geographically dispersed team) usually refers to a group of individuals who work together from different geographic locations and rely on communication technology in order to collaborate.

There are some specifics on leading virtual teams.

Leaders in virtual teams are the ones who have the responsibility of engaging, motivating and challenge the members to deliver their work, know the goals and use resources properly in order to achieve results. Especially in virtual teams where synchronous coordination is challenging, members can experience confusion about their roles and means to accomplish their tasks -and this is always a big challenge for leaders, even if the professional has experience leading non-virtual teams.

To properly lead a virtual team the leader must recognize and learn that communication is one of the most crucial pillars.

Communication is vital to the success of the virtual team and it is crucial that the team is a group of excellent communicators with the proper technology for the best levels of communication. The extensive reliance on communication technology leads to reduced effect and difficulties in management compared to the traditional teams. This program will propose practical tools on using corporate storytelling that will enhance communication, connection and trust between the leader and their team members.

Another very important element that needs to be developed in a leader is their ability to create a culture of inclusion, trust and connection.
