Today’s digital workplace has changed the way leaders and managers need to lead and manage their dispersed workforces. No longer are teams co-located in the same office or building. Having to lead and manage this dispersed workforce needs us to do so over distance, time zones, cultures and using various digital and virtual technologies to achieve results.
As a business leader and manager, you need to develop virtual fluency — the ability to connect, communicate and collaborate virtually with virtual teams and remote employees.
You can no longer rely on the core skills that co-located teams require – virtual teams and remote employees require a different approach, clarity and engagement if they are to perform well.

The course will be most relevant for senior and strategic business professionals such as:
- Leaders or managers developing and hiring a new virtual team
