BYTE Session - Realities of Virtual Collaboration

August 8, 2017

Instructor: brenda huettner


No man is an island; we are all part of a larger community. Rapid advances in tools and technologies offer us a myriad of ways to communicate and collaborate with each other. When we spend all day at the keyboard, it’s easy to forget that we’re still working with humans who happen to be on their own keyboards. 

This session will review some of the current virtual collaboration tools available and suggest ways of using each most efficiently. We’ll also talk about how and when you can incorporate a more personal touch to your communications across the virtual landscape.

We will discuss how to build and maintain high performing virtual teams.

Additionally, we will take a look at how the virtual team changes when you become a multi-national or global team.

BYTE - Global Virtual Teams: The Role of Talent Leaders

March 8, 2016

Instructor: Marjorie Derven


Working on virtual teams, where all or some team members are geographically dispersed during their careers, is rapidly becoming the “new normal.” Globalization, matrix structures, flexible work arrangements, and contingent workforces contribute to this trend. The stakes are high for such teams to be successful, but teamwork challenges are magnified as a consequence of distance, cultural diversity and communication barriers.

Talent development leaders can play a key role in maximizing the effectiveness of these teams by enlisting senior management support, deploying a change management approach, and removing barriers to high performance.
