Are you being ineffective in your communication while working and leading virtual teams?
Working in global virtual teams (GVTs) is becoming commonplace in today’s work environment. Frequently, we find ourselves working on and even leading teams of coworkers we have never met, or with whom we communicate primarily via electronic means. This can lead to increased communication problems that increases conflict and diminish effectiveness of the team. This workshop will enhance understanding of some of the key barriers and outline a set of best practices for developing and maintaining effective global virtual teams. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and at least one case study to analyze and apply the frameworks presented.
