Managing a Remote Team During Coronavirus

Course Introduction

Virtual training technology meeting the needs of individuals and business during Coronavirus

Managing any team comes with its own set of unique challenges.  Yet, every day, as technology moves us forward, we find new ways and means to capitalise on each aspect of the virtual world that we live in.  Such is the case with virtual training technology.

During Coronavirus, many of us are practising social distancing and some of us have either been quarantined or opted to place ourselves in self-isolation.  The implications of this sudden seemingly restrictive new form of living and working are far reaching both for business and our private lives.  Yet, while some might view this time as one of adversity, adverse circumstances are often a breeding ground for new opportunities to grow and learn.  This is where we step in and step up to the plate in the virtual classroom.

Technology and the ability to do everything online are therefore our most important assets in the virtual environment.  Hence, all participants of a virtual or remote team need to be onboard, on the same page and literally singing from the same hymn sheet no matter where they are geographically situated.  The advantages of a remote team also mean that we can choose to work with anyone, anytime, anywhere; bringing a range of diverse skills from the most suitably qualified people into our sphere.  Working remotely also means that we can benefit from different work styles and cultures and share knowledge, information and the newest and latest trends with each other.
