New Work – Careers in a Changing World
This is the motto of the 15th career convention WoMenPower at the Hannover Messe with over 40 lectures, workshops and discussion rounds with interesting women (and men), inspiring role models and top-class speakers. How will we work in the future? Which competences will be required? What do I still have to learn for this? And how does leadership change? These questions are discussed together, best practice examples are presented and food for thought is given.
Remote Leadership: Workshop for Leading Virtual Teams
With the interactive workshop "Far, far away, and yet so close. Success factors for leading virtual teams", Dr. Angelika Schrand and Stefanie Söbke from CONTUR illustrate the opportunities that working in times of digitalization offers to managers when they work together online in remote teams.
Remote leadership is seen in many companies as a challenge. Two of three executives in German-speaking countries see deficits for themselves when it comes to leading virtual teams. Research shows that there are clear competitive advantages when a team is spread all over Germany, Europe or the world – provided executives and team members are able to create closeness and mutual trust despite spacial distance.
At the end of the session the participants know
- The particulars of communication across time and space
- The importance of an online identity
- Ways to create closeness and build up trust
- The potential of using virtual tools
- Tipps and tricks for remote leadership
We look forward to meeting you - at the workshop or at the CONTUR exhibition stand!
