Complete Leadership Series – Virtual Leadership

Virtual via Zoom.

What is it? 

This workshop will explore how to communicate effectively across a range of communication media to a diverse audience. Using a simple model of engagement and looking at ways to build trust,  participants will identify ways that engagement can differ in a virtual environment and will explore how to form strong relationships through trust and communication, with a focus on transparency. Participants will learn how to create connections by building a sense of community and inclusivity, and by leveraging technology. Finally, participants will discuss strategies for leading virtual meetings and then work together to identify virtual team best practices.

Although this session will touch upon using online platforms such as Zoom or MS Teams, it is not a “how to use” session, more a “how to lead effectively in this space” session.

Key outcomes:

  • Articulate strategies for building trust virtually.
  • Foster connections among virtual team members.
  • Build stronger virtual relationships.
  • Lead more effective virtual team meetings.

Requirements: Participants need access to a computer or laptop, or tablet, with camera and microphone – it is not recommended that participants work from a phone. Additionally participants will benefit from working in a quiet/private space and may want to use headphones.
