Managing People You Rarely See
Teleclass on the Management and Facilitation of Virtual/Distributed
Art of Managing an Outstanding Virtual Team. Managing people from
a distance isn’t easy.
Do you need to get rapid
results from people collaborating across multiple locations? This
class will discuss managing remote relationships and frameworks
for successfully managing projects across large distances. There
are issues created by the geographic distance between team members.
But those issues can be overcome, and in fact, the potential of
a distance team to accomplish amazing feats far outweighs any logistical
liabilities. Project development teams scattered around the country
or around the globe can take advantage of the best scientific minds,
technical skills and subject matter experts...if they can manage
the remote relationships effectively. This course will build remote
management competencies by providing a framework for success and
applying it to real-life examples. The course contains consolidated
information packed into a one-day format.
