This is a free preview (15 minutes) of the Virtual Leadership Secrets course. The description of the full course (60 minutes) is provided below.
If you're leading a group of people who work together, but not in the same place, then this course is for you. And if you're new to virtual leadership and you're finding it either challenging or boring, it will be especially useful.
It's been specially designed to demonstrate how virtual leadership is about so much more than chairing boring conference calls, or checking up on your team members. It's not about teaching people to use complicated online collaboration platforms, or getting them to write clearer emails.
This course has been designed to show you how great virtual leadership is not about the technology. It's actually about you and your skill as a leader. And how, when you learn to pay attention to the right things, you and your team can tap into all the advantages of remote working to produce better and better results.
In particular, we'll be looking at the 3 three key skills that research has shown are essential for great collaboration, and how you can develop them in yourself, and in your team.
Your trainer, Judy Rees, is a former news journalist who has been working in, managing and leading virtual teams since well before it was fashionable! The tips she shares are tried and tested in real life across the globe - as well as being supported by recent business-school research.
