Keynote Speech : Celebrations and Collaborations of Engaged Virtual Teams!
Leading and being on a virtual team has become more common as organizations continue to expand globally and are more accepting of virtual working technologies and practices. Successfully working from home, a remote office, or with others in dispersed geographical locations takes practice, commitment, and skill. In addition to being tech savvy, virtual team members need to have self-motivation, the ability to prioritize, and be adaptable, collaborative, organized, communicative, and independent. But these skills alone do not create an engaged team. It’s the relationships people build, the bonds they form, and their shared experiences (both challenging and successful) that create a team that sticks together. Being online and in person doesn’t feel the same once those relationships are created and allowed to thrive.
After attending this session, you will be able to:
• Identify the leading practices for creating collaboration in virtual meetings, like brainstorming and team visioning.
• Create strong team bonds using virtual parties and celebrations like birthdays, showers, and retirements.
• Outline the features and steps involved in creating collaborative meetings.
• Plan your next virtual team holiday party.
