Leading Virtual Teams

by Dan Appleman

This course will teach you how to adapt your existing leadership and management skills to virtual and distributed teams.

What you'll learn

In 2020, technology teams worldwide suddenly became virtual – and for many of them some degree of virtual work has become the new normal. Knowing how to lead virtual teams has become a core skill set for those currently leading teams, and those who wish to move into leadership and management positions. In this course, Leading Virtual Teams, you’ll learn those skills, and the ways in which leading virtual teams differs from those that are not. First, you'll take a close look at the differences between virtual and non-virtual teams, and how those differences result in a unique set of challenges that will be the focus of this course. Next, you'll focus on the work and how to monitor and maintain productivity on a virtual team. Finally, you'll look at the people and how to build culture, community, and cohesion on a team where individual team members rarely, if ever, meet in person. When you're finished with this course, you'll have discovered that leading a virtual team is not harder or worse than that of leading a non-virtual team.
