TEAMS THAT THRIVE IN UNCERTAINTY

are connected to something bigger than just a job

MANAGING VIRTUALLY

IS HARD

In the current environment of remote work, the ability of managers to develop and lead effective virtual teams will determine whether an organization advances, stays still, or is left behind.

 

And yet, with no warning or preparation, most managers have found themselves in the role of developing and leading virtual teams, struggling to be effective while using old ways of working.

 

“COVID-19 has thrust many leaders into remote management, which requires a different skill set than face-to-face management.”

– HBR.org, “Remote Managers Are Having Trust Issues”

 

“Managing at a distance raises challenges of communication, trust, and mental and physical health.”

– Financial Times, “Arms-length managers must channel their inner coach” 

 

“The question now facing many organizations is not how to manage a remote workforce, but how to manage a more complex, hybrid workforce.”

– Elisabeth Joyce, Vice President of Advisory, Gartner HR practice

The top-ranked U.S. women’s soccer team was the team to beat going into the 2019 World Cup. And yet, being the best wasn’t enough for the U.S. team; they not only wanted to win, but also to elevate the conversation about the global pay gap for women. In addition to becoming the 2019 Women’s World Cup champions and breaking seven records, the U.S. team also inspired a worldwide movement for pay equality.
