Presenter: Pam Estes Brewer, Ph.D.
Remote teams are probably a part of your organization’s day-to-day operations. Teaming at a distance is critical to current business strategy, and yet organizations are not preparing their employees to be successful in these teams. Among 285 engineering professionals who participated in a recent survey, 68% reported experiencing communication problems in their virtual teams, and many of these professionals emphasized the costs of miscommunication in virtual teams. Sixty percent of these professionals reported that their organizations provided no formal training to prepare employees to work in remote teams. Another 17% reported that their companies provided some formal training but with limited success. Instead, most of these professionals confessed to learning by trial and error, a very costly approach. In this webinar, Dr. Pam Estes Brewer will tell you how to make remote teams work for you and how to increase the reach of your organization.
