Insights: Working in a virtual team

2hr virtual workshop

Learn how to overcome communication and collaboration challenges that can limit the effectiveness of virtual teams.

Workshop Overview

More people than ever now work in virtual teams.  This level of flexibility and connectivity is great for organisation, but it brings it own challenges for the people and teas who have to build trust without the benefit of regular face-to-face contact.  For some, it will be the first time they’re part of a virtual team and it can be difficult to adjust to their new methods of communicating, sharing and collaborating.  This session will help you jumpstart your virtual team and help them be as effective as possible in their virtual environment.

  • Understand the importance of personal preference to help you work effectively in a virtual environment.
  • Know the value that each team member brings to collective efforts.
  • Build stronger individual and team relationships without the need for face-to-face contact.
  • Understand collective strengths and focus on improving development areas to achieve team goals.

Why virtual?

This session will address the needs of teams and organisations that:

  • Have some or all team members working remotely
  • Have had to work to home-working due to the current crisis
  • Prefer virtual delivery learning due to travel restrictions, global dispersion of teams or for sustainability reasons

The session is designed for virtual delivery, so that team members can enjoy interactive exercises and group discussion while being guided through engaging content by an expert virtual facilitator.

Angela's course design and delivery is always clear and makes learning enjoyable and easy. Her training materials during the training and support afterwards provide great insight in the subject. She works hard to ensure learning's are applied back into the workplace and finding ways for delegates to increase their accountability. Angela is an insightful and energetic trainer and I hope to work with her again in the future.

Angela is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. She uses a great mixture of science, theory, practical exercises and electronic applications to keep the audience engaged throughout any of her courses. She has a great skill at listening to an individual’s input, but still keeping to topic and to time. One of Angela’s greatest skills is building training material specific to a team’s needs, but aligning to wider business strategies and using expert views to deliver material that is well thought through and validated.

Angela has delivered many development programmes to our managers at Allied Bakeries and the feedback is always excellent. Her key strength is in her ability to relate, both to a diverse group of management and to tailor learning to the workplace making it relevant and insightful. She builds confidence in front line managers and creates a safe environment for people to try out new skills. The benefits can be seen in our manager’s capability improvement across the areas she has worked with us on which include Managing Performance, Coaching and Presentation Skills.
