About the course

Whether your organization is adapting to a new virtual work environment, or has remote teams collaborating around the world, the need has never been greater for leaders who can effectively engage with their teams and bring out the best in their people from a distance. In this new virtual program, you’ll learn how to leverage technology to develop the behaviors required in your team to pivot to address dynamic market demands, effect meaningful change across stakeholder groups, and develop new ways to connect virtually to build camaraderie and trust.

Led by Professor Lynn Isabella, an expert in leadership, coaching, and team engagement, Leading Virtual Teams Through Disruption will explore the emotional and productivity challenges of working virtually, how you can increase team resilience during challenging times, how to manage differences and conflict, and how you can use technology to your advantage to help your team stay connected and informed, so that everyone still feels they are a valued contributor to the team and organization. You’ll have an opportunity to put your insights into practice while interacting virtually with your cohort and with your own team, getting real-time feedback on your challenges and progress.

Topics include:

  • Fostering high-performance virtual teams
  • Effective communication and collaboration
  • Exploring differences and managing conflict
  • Addressing emotional and social needs
  • Benefits and challenges of technology in team productivity

This program features 2-3 live virtual sessions per week, with additional online work and exercises.
