Outcome of the training

To sum up, along with identifying ways for creating a global development plan, this training will assist your future endeavors in:

  • Gaining insights on how cultural diversity impacts global virtual working

  • Develop essential skills for supporting progress in virtual teams

  • Learn practical techniques that will help support growth among teams

The workshop is designed for HR and L&D professionals who support the development of geographically dispersed. The duration of the workshop is 3 hours.

Employees have been working virtually across cultures well before the pandemic and will continue in the future. According to a 2018 survey by RW3, 62 % of the people surveyed work on teams with three or more cultures. However, less than a quarter receive formal training. This gap in learning and doing may lead to ineffective teams because employees need to understand the virtual context so that they can adapt their behaviors. HR and L & D professionals can support employees to develop the capacities while nurturing an inclusive global culture.

During this webinar, the HR and L&D professionals will learn:

  • The fundamentals of global virtual working and how cultural diversity and geographic distance impact how people think, feel and act while working virtually.

  • The skills and competences for global effective leadership and techniques to support the development.

  • How to create a development plan for global leaders and employees.
