About this course

Covid-19 has confined all of us within four walls. Working remotely has become a new norm. Most companies are smoothly transitioning and embracing this change while some are grappling with the situation. Over the last 15 months, we have seen a dramatic change in the way we work, communicate, live and lead. Working remotely has made us too comfortable at our own homes but has posed numerous challenges for team leads to connect with their members virtually.

Managers are struggling to monitor their employees and their performance. They are trying to find new ways to boost their team’s morale and productivity. Organizations are finding it hard to maintain relationships with both their employees and customers. What adds to their plight is the constant disruptions in technology. Half of their problem lies in dealing with virtually illiterate employees and the other half is worrying about cybersecurity or privacy breach.

Leading a team virtually has its challenges. So, naturally, leaders have to up their game. E-leadership is a true test of a person’s leadership skills. The basics of being a strong leader remain the same, but a leader must come up with unique techniques to manage his/her team well when working remotely. A good leader must be more proactive, deliberate, and determined to make sure he/she can foster teamwork remotely.

BlessingWhite has created Leading in a Virtual Environment (LIVE), a one-day course for those leading others across distance. This workshop presents leadership fundamentals and then applies them to actual virtual leadership situations. It offers tools and strategies to make leaders more effective virtually. Participants learn and use skills and tools through a mix of instruction, lecture, simulation and practice. Their learning is enhanced by direct input from their virtual associates and direct feedback from workshop peers.
