Employee engagement guidance for managers of virtual teams
Informative Webinar with Yael Zofi Monday November 14
The managers guide. I completed reading Yael Zofi’s wonderful book, A Manager’s Guide to Virtual Teams. Yael has created a powerful and practical guide for managers of virtual teams. You will learn how to create trust and accountability, navigate through communication challenges, resolve conflicts, and ensure deliverable get out the door.
A virtual team – whether across the street or across the world – is a team whose members simultaneously work together to a common purpose, while physically apart.
Virtual challenges. Engaging virtual teams is all about connection and finding powerful and connected approaches to handle some of the numerous challenges:
- Team Building
- Walking the Talk
It is impossible to overstate the importance of trust and accountability in business (as with all human) relationships. Accountability and trust are spoken of in the same breath because they are interrelated. Accountability provides the energy for the virtual team’s day-to-day activities, but trust is the larger concept and at the very core of human interactions. And trust develops over time. (p. 98).
Zofi goes on to map out and help us navigate the road to realizing and achieving accountability and trust with our virtual team.
