ASVPM Meetup: Remote Teams that ROCK!
Agile and Scaled Value Project Management ASVPM
Our next Agile & Scaled-Value Project Management Meetup hour is scheduled for November 30th, 2022.
Time: 12:00pm PDT / 2:00pm CST / 3:00pm EDT
Topic: Remote Teams that ROCK!
Our Guest Speaker is Kimberly Wiefling
An introduction to the meetup:
We will engage you in an interactive, experiential session that demonstrates that permanent virtual teams CAN build strong relationships, trust, good communication, clear goals, and persistent plans…and execute with excellence together!
Communication skills are among the most powerful tools available to leaders. Study after study reveals that communication skills are one of the top skills required for success in life and on the job. In fact, the #2 reason global teams don’t achieve their goals is due to ineffective communication. (The #1 reason is that they fail to build trusting relationships, which ALSO depends on skillful communication!) And VIRTUAL communication creates huge, but NOT insurmountable, challenges.
First step? Learn to use the tools! Start with Zoom as it’s the easiest and most powerful for global virtual teams. Add in a dose of Google Docs/Sheets/Slides to amplify the power of your team to work in parallel.
- Think you can’t engage and connect meaningfully virtually? You can! We’ll prove it.
- Tackle complex problems and make decisions together by interacting visually.
- Work in massively parallel ways that will make you wonder if virtual is better than live!
- Learn to lead effectively in this virtual world by engaging & connecting to people.
- Avoid F.A.I.L.-ing for entirely predictable and largely avoidable reasons!
