About the Event
When: April 15th @ 2pm (EDT)
As businesses around the world cancel in-person meetings in response to the COVID-19, virtual ways of working are emerging as an alternative, because businesses can’t afford to put team working on hold. In theory, virtual working sounds easy, but it can only be successful if crucial fundamental principles are adopted by the team. Many teams become dysfunctional and fail to achieve expectations and goals because of unclear purpose, leadership failures, insufficient processes regarding roles and responsibilities, lack of a code of conduct, and risks associated with geographical and cultural barriers.
In this hour and a half long webinar, Rob Veersma, Director of Training and Development at Gazprom International in the Netherlands, will address the main challenges of virtual team working and will provide you with some key tips to successfully manage your remote teams.

How to Successfully Manage Virtual Teams During The COVID-19 Pandemic
Over the last weeks, we have witnessed an enormous emphasis on using the right tools and technologies, but we tend to forget how to work as a team, and which behaviors and protocols are needed to be clearly communicated to create a successful team and productive workflow. The selection of the most appropriate set of tools should only be addressed when all of these factors have been addressed.
In this webinar Rob Veersma will address the benefits and risks of Virtual Team Working, using the Shell T3- approach (Team, Task, Technology) to provide proven and practical guidelines.
