Literally Virtually: From Surviving to Thriving

Today, virtual teams may be the single most important way organizations prioritize and coordinate work. The COVID-19 pandemic redefined our lives and changed how we live, work, and interact. With the rapid transition to a remote workforce, many leaders and team members are challenged by the unique differences that affect communication, productivity, engagement, and personal well-being. Leading and being a member of a virtual team is more complex and more time-consuming than an onsite team.

Join us for this live online interactive session with ATD member, Lee Johnsen from Madison, Wi. This session offers learning and development professionals, virtual team members, and leaders a perspective of the rapid changes taking place that are shaping the workforce—now and in the future. We’ll probe some of the challenges and best practices of thriving high performing virtual teams. Gain insights and resources to navigate the transitions as organizations and team members shift to a more virtual workforce.

Attending this session, participants will:

  1. Engage in a mix of content presentation, interaction, and Q & A on topics that include: (a) Top virtual team challenges & (b) Virtual leader top skills today.
  2. Discover best practices for leading virtual teams.
  3. Receive a Quick Reference Guide with links to additional resources.
