With most work having gone virtual or remote overnight for those who can, what is needed in order to lead and be a great team member? Now's the time to get up to speed quickly.
For those who have been following along my writing for a while, you'll know that for the last 3 years I've done a monthly call related to Effective Virtual Conversations. You can find them here on YouTube. These are focused in on what it takes to have a great conversation in the remote space. Teams who shifted last week are going to need to have productive virtual working sessions this week - check out these videos for tips on how to lead virtual calls, skills needed, tricky issues (and how to avoid them).
A reminder that I'll be leading a group through the one-day Virtual Faciltation Essentials program this Wednesday March 25th from 10 - 530 pm Eastern/Toronto. Throughout the program you'll get a chance to learn, and practice, the various virtual facilitation tools which are available. 5 spots still open. Check it out here.
For those that are leading remote teams, you may want to focus on some of the remote work and remote team PlanDoTrack video calls I've done including:
