Virtual Teams Series

Virtual Teams Series

Working in virtual teams (also described as dispersed, distributed, or remote teams) is becoming increasingly prevalent in today's workforce. While there are many benefits to working virtually, team members may sometimes feel disconnected, isolated, and frustrated by unclear communication processes and technological challenges.

We invite learners at all levels to a series of learning events on virtual teams. Delivered virtually, the discussions, mini workshops, and webcast exercises will enable participants to foster highly effective virtual teams.

Upcoming events


Building Trust in a Virtual Team

Authentic human connection based on trust is vital to any organization's success. Top-performing virtual teams demonstrate high levels of trust, even while working at a distance, with team members who have never met each other in person. How do they achieve this trust? Join us for this important conversation to find out.

This second installment in our Virtual Team series focuses on developing and maintaining trust in a virtual team and will present some practical tools and strategies proven to build and strengthen trust.

Please share your relevant learning needs with us via our Transferable Skills GCcollab discussion. Future events in the Virtual Team series will be developed based on your feedback.

Collaborating in a Virtual Space

By creating a collaborative virtual space, you can bring colleagues together even when they are working in different locations or even different time zones. Despite these major distances, they must still work effectively together on everyday tasks and major projects, while also staying up-to-date with the information they need. What techniques, collaborative tools and communication technologies allow them to succeed? Join this important conversation for some helpful guidance.

This third installment in our Virtual Team series focuses on helpful productivity technologies and communication tools.
