Description

Overview:

Do You have remote workers? Is Your Team distributed in several locations? Then this Online Masterclass “Virtual Power Teams” is for You!

In our always connected, digitally enabled and fast changing world of globalized business, many successful Managers, Entrepreneurs, Team Leaders and Project Managers lead projects and teams that are spread across different locations. The possibilities for physical in-person meetings or face-to-face conversations across these teams is often challenged by budget, logistics or time constraints yet greater agility and more fluid execution is required to succeed. Often when a Project team is physically dispersed, they suffer communication delays and sometimes complete failure for a wide range of reasons. International investments are put at risk due to intercultural issues or simply because the team members feel isolated and demotivated. In this engaging and experiential masterclass, you will hear about several case studies illustrating the Virtual Power Teams method that will empower you and your teams to overcome these challenges, reduce these risks and help you gain a unique insight on how to deliver projects quicker, reduce costs and develop your virtual teams for your success!
