• What we'll do
Todd DeLuca will be providing a live webinar on Collaborating on Remote Teams.
The definition and the makeup of workplace teams has changed significantly due to technology and the ubiquity of the internet. In fact, odds are good that you are part of a group or team with members that are not physically located in a local office. There may even be people you work with that you’ve never seen or met in person. Basically, if you use email, IM, online meetings, or discussion boards, you’re part of a virtual team.
How would you rate your virtual team experience? The dynamics of being part of a team in this new landscape are different and most organizations don’t manage or support virtual teams as effectively as they could. Often the tried-and-true methodologies from the past don’t meet the needs of a more distributed, diverse, and international workforce. There’s a lot of room for improvement. Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here and joining together virtually to share suggestions on making virtual teams work better.
Our speaker, Todd DeLuca (aka ‘TechCommTodd’) has been a virtual worker and manager for the past 8 years and understands both the issues and opportunities that virtual teams present. The rules of the road are different when you’re part of a virtual group or organization, which Todd will outline and discuss. He will also present virtual team challenges and offer ways to address them in order to change the experience from sometimes frustrating to mostly positive. Spoiler: You still have to work with people and have meetings (at least occasionally).
Join us for an honest look at virtual teams and come away with helpful ideas and useful suggestions on how to be a star member of your own virtual group. And don’t be surprised if some of the solutions center around communication.
