This course is for any leader or project manager who is leading a dispersed global team. At the end of the course you will have techniques you can immediately implement to become an effective global leader and build a high performance team.

First, we discuss the five changes you can make to your meetings right now to create a more inclusive and productive structure. Next, we discuss some of the common errors made in decision making that hinder the team’s productivity and speed. Once these foundations are discussed, we move on to one of the key challenges of leading global teams: getting everyone to actively participate.

We also discuss how you get even the politely silent members to engage in discussions and share their brilliance with the team.Then we tackle the second key challenge of leading global teams: getting members to not only say “yes” to tasks but also follow up with results. Lastly, for those ready to move their team from ordinary to incredible, we talk about the steps needed to create a high-performing global team.

This course was a good review on the concept of leading a global team.

Good content, some obvious, but still good.The first set of slide is not that relevant, so my first impression was not so good. The course got better as it progress, presenting cultural differences an strategies/technics to help team members to remove cultural obstacles. I would recommend this course to other colleagues.

I found this training to be applicable whether your team is internationally or nationally disbursed. One major takeaway I had was to include Expected Outcomes in meeting agendas. This provides everyone, especially introverts, a chance to think about and prepare for the meeting ahead of time.

Great course. The insights are actionable and relevant. I can already see that I will use everything included in the training. Would love to have a part 2 for the one on one meetings, too.

This is a great course with a lot of valuable information even if you are not managing global teams. The speaker is good as well as the materials used in the presentation.

While the most of the content is more relevant to a pre-Covid setting, there are still some takeaways that can be used today.
