Course Overview
Hello, everyone. My name is Doru Catana, and welcome to my course, Creating a Virtual Team Communication Plan. After over 10 years experience with digital marketing and training where all my clients and even part of my team were on different continents, I know firsthand the struggles one can face in the pursuit of effective communication. And that is why I created this course so you don't have to make the same mistakes, waste resources, and miss out on the opportunities and the immense potential working in a virtual team has to offer. And as with most of my courses, I don't just share a list of tools that you can use that might be valid today and discontinued 2 years from now. I go from principles up, sharing the fundamentals of effective communication, things like trust, clarity, speed, simplicity, and I work my way up to purpose and function, and then we discuss tools. And even at that point, I share with you the criteria for choosing the right ones and how to adapt based on your industry, team size, organizational culture, and your own unique style. And I leave no stone unturned. We cover everything from communication objectives, format, channels, feedback, learning, and even look at decision making in the context of a virtual team. And, of course, on top of all the principles, strategies, and theory, you get a plethora of options for tools and applications for everything from project management to time tracking, meetings, messaging, sharing feedback, all of which I've personally used and tested so you can make the best decision when it comes to your own unique context. And my personal promise to you that by the end of this course, you will have a clear and actionable virtual communication plan that will allow you to manage your team effectively reduced to a minimum interruptions and miscommunication, foster a healthy work environment where trust and mutual understanding flourish without compromising on performance. I hope you will join me on this journey and learn how to create your own virtual team communication plan here on Pluralsight.
