David Smith, Virtual Gurus
After watching this webinar
you will be able to:
- Create the conditions needed for successful communication, trust building and motivation
- Ensure that remote workers are as equally aligned as face-to-face colleagues
- Anticipate and overcome the obstacles to peak performance
- Leverage best practices in each of the three key areas.
In very general terms, the ‘world of work’ is changing: it’s not so much a place you go – as in ‘I’m off to work’ – but an output you create, because we are no longer confined to one space to get work done. Virtual communication and collaboration software – as well as the convenience of mobile devices – has helped us ‘go remote.’ But while this freedom opens many doors in terms of positive outcomes (like increased productivity, better collaboration and more global partnership opportunities, just to name a few), there are a host of new problems we need to navigate: how do you manage remote teams? How do managers of remote teams grow their team and support their employees? How do you make sure that your remote employees don’t suffer a loss of identity within the context of your team?
David Smith, the Global Director of Virtual Learnings at TMA World and Founding Partner of Virtual Gurus, will show us exactly how to maximise the performance of remote workers in today’s session. He will take us through remote management challenges and how we tackle them – like building trust, managing expectations and measuring performance – and he will demonstrate to us how to ensure that remote workers are as equally aligned within the team as face-to-face colleagues.
