A Culture of Connection for Virtual Teams

Everyone communicates, but do you connect?

Team and organizational culture in a remote workplace requires more than just the sum of individual performances, personalities, or attitudes – it’s about how the team works together as a cohesive unit. There are many aspects involved in fostering and maintaining a productive and meaningful team culture, but none are as important as trust and communication: Without them, everything else falls apart.

In this session, participants will learn how to build authentic bonds, facilitate the communication process, and cultivate collaboration among team members – an essential course for the work-from-home leader, presented by Coach Tracey Knight.

KEY CONCEPTS

  • Trust, communication, and accountability as essential elements of effective virtual teams
  • Communication vs. connection
  • Being attuned to others and learning how to diplomatically overcome cultural barriers in virtual teams

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the advantages and plan to overcome the challenges of the virtual workplace.
  • Compare and contrast communication and connection, and assess their roles in your team.
  • Develop systems of accountability for teleworking.
  • Employ verbal and nonverbal communication techniques to lead a virtual team.

AUDIENCE

Any nonprofit professional managing down, across, or up in your organization. Those in formal management and supervision roles may find this course particularly valuable.
