How to Work Effectively in Virtual Teams

As working from home has become the ‘new normal’ for many of us, does it require us to re-evaluate the skills we need to be successful?

What do we know about managing a virtual team?

What have we learned since March 2020?

This will be an interactive session, so questions and insights from your own experiences will be encouraged. Are you beginning to suffer from online working fatigue? How do we keep the momentum going as lockdowns and social distancing continue? Join us for this informative and collaborative session.

This presentation is personal, emotive and challenging. Using his experiences, John will challenge you to reflect upon how you take the initiative and lead from choice rather than reaction, providing a personal view of how you deal with uncertainty and chaos, whilst challenging you to consider how you would deal with crises.
