This course explores how globalization has made virtual teams the "new normal" and how this is changing organizational relationships in profound ways. As a business necessity, these teams are only likely to increase, but they present many unique challenges. When global virtual teams are less effective than they could be, it is like leaving money on the table. 

To fully leverage the diversity of functions, cultures, learning styles and other differences to spark innovation, global teams need enhanced communication techniques, inclusive leadership and purposeful approaches that enable full participation of all team members. You will learn to identify the need for a formal process to make these teams work and how to apply a model to address their own organizational needs.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore how virtual teams are increasing as a result of globalization and technology
  • Identify virtual team advantages and disadvantages
  • Identify what actions are most important when building a virtual team
  • Identify how to diagnose when virtual team problems exist and recognize how to address them
  • Discover how to adapt your own leadership approach and become a great virtual leader

A lot of good information and suggestions. It would help if the slides are updated. Some slides were not in sequence and some are missing.
