Course Description

Managing Virtual Teams Training

Managing a virtual team is different from managing a team that is physically present, and requires a different set of skills for success.

Virtual team management often requires you to deal with cultural differences, time differences, remoteness and technological barriers. This training includes setting up a virtual team, conducting meetings, overcoming special challenges, using appropriate communication tools and dealing with inefficiency. These skills help you to establish and manage a virtual team successfully.

The PD Training Virtual Team Management Training Course provides skills and understanding in handling effective meetings and group sessions, handle poor performing employees and how to use tools to build trust and confidence among employees.

This is a practical class that is suitable for all audiences and provides people with the tools that they can apply on-the-job (and in other contexts) the very next day. This is an instructor-led class that you can attend from home or your office. 

We use secure Video Conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat and breakout sessions.

These courses are facilitated in English, and are open to people from different industries in all countries especially across The United States, Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong - this is a short but powerful learning experience that gives you global collaboration opportunities.  Our trainers and processes have been refined to give you a personalised learning experience where it is specifically targeted to your needs, see our outcomes in the reviews.
