Four weeks including leadership coaching, live online interactive format

Class Size: 

8-25 participants


Remote work – or virtual work – has been called the biggest driver of transformation in the workplace. If you have taken on the leadership role of a virtual team, you probably agree! How do you lead a team you’ve never met face-to-face? How do you motivate and engage people who are across the globe? Clearly, virtual team leaders need different skills than managers of teams who work in the same location.


In order to realize the many benefits of virtual teams – a nimble, highly productive work environment, great flexibility, lower operational costs, increased diversity, global reach – you need a leader who understands the challenges and solutions unique to virtual teams.


Powers Resource Center is the industry expert on this topic. Its principal, Tara Powers, is the foremost thought leader on virtual team best practices and she has been training virtual teams for many years. She is the author of the book ‘Virtual Teams for Dummies’ published by Wiley in 2018.

Who Should Attend:

Managers, supervisors or executives who oversee virtual teams
