Building Your Virtual Team

Reviews | What's Included? | Download PDF

Over the years, institutions of higher education have experimented with different ways to work together remotely and implement remote learning, while attempting to achieve the same level of individual and group productivity as they have in person.

As virtual tools and platforms were developed and utilized, it became apparent that merely choosing the right platform does not guarantee a successful outcome for virtual groups, just as getting a group of people together does not guarantee a successful meeting.

Without a template or proven roadmap to operate virtually to follow, many administrators and educators have struggled to measure effectiveness, grasp proper supervisory methods, and determine how to establish a virtual environment where individuals in different geographic locations could function productively individually and as a team.

Building Your Virtual Team is a customized workshop that will give you and your remote team a roadmap for how to move forward while helping to organize yourselves for increased efficiency and success - with fewer potential conflicts. This workshop focuses on:

  • Methodologies that the group can use in future virtual gatherings, including but not limited to Team Charters, Tools to Assess Participation and Engagement, Sharing of Best Practices, and How to Address conflict.
  • Helping to create S.M.A.R.T. goals, which are championed by the group.
  • Creation of a Scope and Objective Statement to make sure that everyone is on the same page.
  • Individual reflection on participants' values, and how a mutual understanding of these values can make the difference between triggering conflict or collectively working towards common goals effectively.

Our team of training professionals, who have collectively worked with remote groups in over 75 countries, will customize your workshop to meet your specific goals and outcomes.

We will conduct an assessment before your program to ensure that the training meets your group's specific needs. Whether they are just starting to navigate the virtual environment, or have already been using various virtual tools and would like next-level guidance.

We also offer a 60-Minute version of this program called We're All Virtual: Now What?

We all loved our Virtual Best Collegiate Feud program! Everyone enjoyed the experience and we have been hearing positive feedback from participants. We loved seeing our custom questions included in the gameplay. Our host Paul was extremely engaging and fun to talk to, with a sharp wit and ability to think on his feed. We loved it all!

Tom Leu is a fantastic professional speaker and workshop leader. Wow! Tom’s energetic and engaging style really captivates audiences... he packs a ton of inspiring and useful information we can take home with us in his Presentation Skills Workshop. Highly recommended!

Our "A Minute 2 Win It" event was a great success! Your lead facilitator did a phenomenal job at connecting with the student participants and keeping their engagement high throughout the event. We look forward to future events with Best Corporate Events! Thank you very much!
