If you've been involved in standard team management or been part of a team working in an office, don't be fooled. Managing virtual teams and remote teamwork can be challenging, even if you have a good understanding of successful leadership. An article on entrepreneur.com points out that when you have a virtual team, you need to create a remote corporate structure. In the article, Rocco Baldassarre writes, "A 2020 workforce survey found that 83% of employers plan to increase the number of telecommuters within the next 3 years." This leads to the conclusion that successful team management and teamwork in telecommuting will become increasingly important.
In the training we will look at what are the main advantages and disadvantages in modern remote team management, what communication skills you need to have when working in a remote team, what are the main challenges you are likely to face and how to deal with them.
