Leading at a distance

To help managers and team leaders deal with the challenges of virtual teams, we have developed a virtual mini learning path at Trixolutions.
This consists of 5 dazzling and interactive mini workshops in our Trixolutions Virtual Classroom.

Will virtual collaborating continue to work?

We conducted a survey with our customers to identify the 10 biggest pitfalls that virtual team leaders see:

  1. Keeping the team engaged and motivated
  2. Communication
  3. Stimulating the creativity of the team
  4. Holding team members accountable
  5. Dealing with conflicts
  6. Managing on output
  7. Collaborating around a clear set of values and goals
  8. Building trust
  9. Achieving the results on time and within the budget
  10. Valuing and exploiting cultural differences

To help managers to tackle these challenges and to arm themselves and their team against them, Trixolutions has developed a virtual mini learning path.
