Equip Managers to Effectively Manage Virtual Teams
Increase manager effectiveness with remote teams.
Virtual team members must rely upon collaboration technology to communicate and collaborate.
Management practices and approaches that work face to face do not always translate effectively in virtual contexts.
Managers cannot rely upon spontaneous social interactions that happen organically when people are co-located to build meaningful and trusting relationships. Space and time need to be created in a virtual environment for this to happen.
Observing an employee’s performance or development can be more difficult, and relying on others’ feedback becomes more critical for managing performance and development.
Managing virtual teams does not require developing new manager competencies. Instead, managers need to “dial up” competencies they already have and adjust their approaches.
Setting clear expectations with virtual teams creates the foundation needed to manage them effectively.
Virtual employees crave more meaningful interactions about performance and development with their managers.
Impact and Result
Create a solid foundation for managing virtual teams by setting clear expectations and taking a more planful approach to managing performance and employee development.
Dial up key management competencies that you already have. Managers do not need to develop new competencies; they just need to adjust and refocus their approaches.
