Leading multicultural and virtual teams
More organisations are working globally and virtually – this one-day workshop covers how to lead virtual teams, adapt for differences in culture and improve impact
We measure the impact of the one-day training through post-course evaluation, giving you confidence about the return on your investment. The relationships and learning community built between participants during the course fosters peer support, engagement and on-going personal development.
