Topic: How to Engage Virtual Team - techniques to keep your staff healthy, happy, and inspired.

How do you motivate and engage staff? Incentives work but not all the time. They never have.

To motivate people you have to go deep into what they secretly want and need from a leader, their job and their personal lives.

It’s something hardly anyone will come out and tell you. So how do you learn what their expectations are and how you can make them feel truly recognized and appreciated?

Time and distance make it significantly more difficult to make each individual team member feel that their contributions are valued; that their work and insights provide real use to the larger group.

Managers and team leaders need a different set of tools to keep virtual teams motivated towards their goals as individuals and a cohesive unit
