Conflict Management in Virtual Teams


Your Situation

Working in virtual teams is becoming increasingly relevant and opens up future-oriented and promising opportunities for collaboration. However, it also brings with it new challenges. The spatial distance between the participants increases the demands on managers to create a trustful basis of communication. The potential for conflict also increases however due to the lack of personal contact. The performance of a team is directly related to its ability to solve conflicts in a virtual environment. Conflicts are triggers for important and goal-oriented discussions, which however, if not recognized or incorrectly addressed, can also cause lasting damage to team performance.
This training is directed towards technical and disciplinary managers and project managers of virtual teams who experience conflicts in their virtual team or who find themselves time and again in conflict situations. They want to recognize potential emerging conflicts at an early stage and solve them professionally in order to strengthen the success of their team in the long term.
