Leading Geographically Disperse Teams

As the world grows smaller, or at least it seems so as technology advances, people are working together more than ever.  And, most are not located in the same office, city or even state.  They are located around the globe.

While this provides us a huge advantage in the variety of resources available for our teams, and the wonderful diversity and creativity that many viewpoints can bring, it poses many challenges for today’s project manager or team leader.

Learning how to work with disperse teams is no longer optional.  Today, it is a core skill that you must have to succeed.

This presentation will cover some of the key challenges of working with geographically disperse teams: Communications, building relationships, cultural differences, motivation, and conflict management.  We’ll explore a tool that can set the foundation for success and learn skills that will help us triumph in the new virtual world.
