Certificate Overview  

Certificate Overview

If you find yourself thrust into a virtual team as a leader or member participating in non-stop online meetings in less than ideal situations, this certificate is for you. Your instructors, Kassy and Tom, have a combined 35+ years of experience working remotely and participating in and leading virtual teams. In fact, they literally wrote the book on making virtual training, meetings, and webinars interactive and engaging! We’ll explore thoroughly researched and practical tips and advice, and all relevant angles and audiences will be covered. If you work remotely, you will walk away more productive than ever, while avoiding work-life imbalance. Your virtual teams will better collaborate and support each other while avoiding collaborative overload. Virtual leaders will enable greater effectiveness for virtual departments and project teams, whether members are full-time remote or in a hybrid scenario. You will also make valuable connections and gain additional advice and leading practices from your cohort of learners who are excelling at this new world of work. Bring your biggest virtual team and remote work challenges and questions, and be prepared to work on them together!

  • Template for Virtual Team Operating Agreements
  • Checklist of virtual team leading practices
  • Book chapter on celebration meetings
  • Checklists covering common virtual platforms

Who Should Attend:
Anyone who is a member of or leads a virtual team (any team where more than one person is not co-located with everyone else).
