What are Virtual Teams?

Virtual teams are groups of people who work together on common projects from dispersed geographical locations with the purpose of achieving a common goal or objective. Due to new communication technology such as video calling, email, fax and more, working in virtual teams has become easier than ever. Even though this technology enables individuals to work together from different parts of the world, it is still more difficult to manage and operate in a virtual team than for ones that are in the same place. 

Virtual team training can teach you and your team the skills needed to effectively carry out your projects and achieve your goals from different places. Browse through the list of courses above and find one that meets your personal or professional goals. 

Virtual Team Training

There are many factors that go into working in a virtual team. As such, virtual team training courses cover a variety of important and informational topics. Some courses are specifically designed for managers and those leading virtual teams. These courses include topics such as tools, tactics, processes and methodologies needed to manage virtual teams, challenges that managers may face and how to move past them, adaptability, teamwork, and additional competencies that will help individuals succeed in their virtual leadership positions. 

In addition to leadership training, there are also many courses that are aimed at training whole teams on how to work together efficiently from offsite locations. If the right conditions and elements are established and maintained, then virtual teams have the ability to be just as effective as co-located teams. 

Some of the topics covered in virtual team training includes: 

  • Connecting team members
  • Skills and techniques to contribute to a virtual team
  • Analyzing personalities and working types
  • Communicating with team members
  • Rules and meeting protocols
  • Commitment, responsibility and accountability 

Virtual Team Training Formats

Virtual team training is offered by various providers in different formats. One of the most popular format for virtual teams, due to their location barriers, is online. With online training all members can participate in the same course no matter where they work from. Online training is also beneficial because it allows professionals to learn and review course material when it best suits their schedule.

Virtual team training is also offered in traditional classrooms and as in-house courses. Classroom courses give participants the chance to learn from a live expert, participate in group discussions with other professionals and learn how their virtual teams operate and gain hands-on experience. Classroom courses vary by location, date, time, price and length so individuals have the chance to find the best one for them. 

If you are able to get your whole team in one place then in-house training is your best option. With in-house training an expert instructor will come directly to your location and will format the session to meet your teams individual needs. With so many training options to choose from, there is no reason to wait any longer. Enroll in a virtual team training course today!
