In today’s world of globalization, a software developer is not a scientist working in isolation. It has become common that the developer needs to work on site or have to interact with the partners in countries like US, UK, Australia or New Zealand. Doing business with clients from across the world demands not just a high degree of technical skills but also awareness of culture specific behaviors. And that makes it necessary to develop employee’s interpersonal and behavioral skills. Therefore soft skilled employees are high in demand for Indian IT companies who are now involved in bigger projects.
Virtual teams provide unique advantages for an organization as well as raise special kinds of challenges that their leaders must address. With the widespread advances of COVID-19, companies and organizations around the world have been thrust into working remotely. But as many are discovering, having a virtual team is very different from working face-to-face—and requires a new set of leadership skills.
This is particularly trying for managers because they tend to be hard on themselves. Only 15% of managers feel they’re very effective, while 53% say they’re only moderately so. That’s during normal times, and now they’re trying to lead a remote team with no training on best practices.
Conceptually, virtual teams are the same with traditional teams, but managing virtual teams requires additional skills like dealing with time related issues, communication barriers, diversity and team building. Because of these differences, managers of virtual teams should know how to create practices and activities that result in the success of the team. This Managing Virtual Teams training course will equip you with the knowledge and abilities essential in leading virtual teams to higher levels of efficiency, hold effective meetings, handle poor performing employees and use tools to build trust and confidence among employees.
