Topics Covered

The Unique Aspects of the Virtual Work Environment

You’re a remote leader—welcome to the club. You are part of a growing group of leaders tasked with managing and leading individuals across the country and around the world. That sounds like a big task, and it is. Whether you’re in the same building or not, leadership is complex.

What’s critical to remember is that you’re a leader first. No matter where you are, you must connect employees to the company vision, provide direction and coaching, inspire and motivate, create strong work goals, and so on. Leadership is complicated, and as a virtual leader, you have the added challenge of needing to perform your leadership role and responsibilities by working through and with technology.

The good news is there are a number of best practices and techniques you can implement to maximize the technology, thus turning a virtual work environment from a challenging environment into one that is engaging, energizing and gets work done.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Find out what’s unique about leading within the virtual environment

Classic Leadership with a Virtual Twist

Issues such as working with remote technology, managing various work schedules, and coordinating time zones are all part of leading a virtual team. And while each of these elements is vital to your success, it’s easy to get lost in the virtual aspects of managing your team, and thus lose sight of what’s really most important your leadership.

First and foremost you are a leader, and as a leader you are responsible for managing, directing and coaching each person to perform at the highest level. Now whether you do this from the same office building or not, is in some ways, an afterthought. Of course that doesn’t mean leading a virtual team is easy; there are certainly some unique challenges involved. However, it does mean you must always remember your leadership comes first—the virtual part comes second.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know what additional leadership actions are a must when leading others remotely

Building Trust in the Virtual Environment

One of the most important aspects of leading others is building trust. Trust sets the tone for any working relationship and creates the environment for great work to flow. When trust is present, leaders know their employees are working hard to achieve their goals and objectives, while at the same time employees know their leader believes in them to do the job they were hired to do—without the need to continually check in and monitor progress.

When trust does not exist, leaders are weary, and are not sure if their employees are doing what they’re supposed to do. So leaders call and email, and call again. Yet constant phone calls and emails to monitor progress wear employees down. This lack of trust hurts work relationships as well as performance because employees are left to question every decision they make, and are not free to do their work in the way they think is best.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Learn how to shift your mindset to successfully build trust and lead others in the virtual environment
