Working in a Virtual Team -- Making Remote Work Work

Description:  Are you transitioning to working from home? Have you ever caught yourself yet jumping to conclusions or misinterpreting emails, when remotely communicating with your colleagues? More and more organizations were offering their teams flexible work options even before the coronavirus required many of us to work more and more from a distance. Businesses now rely on remote teams more than ever to accomplish their team goals and individual team member objectives. While remote work will continue beyond our current requirements to offer flexibility, increased job satisfaction, and higher productivity, virtual teams also come with a number of challenges that, if not addressed, can undermine goals, relationships, and team effectiveness.  Instructor:  Robert Kenney.
