VIRTUAL TEAMS

Culture has a big influence on our communication, also virtually. We give you an insight in to what impact culture has on the dynamics that arise in a virtual team and we train your competencies so that you act appropriately in the teams.

Do you experience that your virtual meetings aren’t as effective as you wish they could be? Do misunderstandings arise because of a difference in expectations to the process, for example what the next step is and who should take it? Or can it be difficult to achieve good relations in a virtual collaboration? Do you think that it is difficult to conduct a dynamic brainstorm in a virtual meeting? If so, a training in virtual teams can help you to optimise collaboration in your virtual teams.

THIS TRAINING WILL GIVE YOU, AMONGST OTHER THINGS

Specific knowledge about

  • Which cultural differences you should be aware of in your virtual team
  • What you should be especially aware of as a moderator of a meeting and how to structure a culturally intelligent “rhythm of communication” (when do we use video conferencing and written communication, when should the whole team meet, and when is it appropriate to have a one-to-one conversation)
  • How cultural differences influence our expectations of how processes should be led, how meetings should be held, and how decisions should be made
  • How features such as in Skype for Business, can be used to optimise virtual communication in a multicultural team
