Managing a Virtual Team

Managing a Virtual Team

Are your managers equipped?

Engaging your team and creating a performance culture in a virtual environment.

Managing a virtual team is tough. Ensuring you can performance manage, coach, have engaging team meetings and support specific workload and client issues can be very challenging even for the most experienced of Managers. This can be even more pronounced if this is new to you and driven by circumstances outside of your control. Imparta has designed a specific programme (delivered virtually) to provide Managers with the skills, confidence and structure to manage a virtual team effectively.

Managing a virtual team is either a four-hour programme or four separate sessions, delivered virtually by one of our expert facilitators. The course uses Zoom to allow for extensive interactivity, including role-plays, breakout rooms and other exercises, to ensure skills are learned in an experiential way.
