Managing Remote Teams

Managing Remote Teams

Updated May 27, 2018

As a leader of a remote team, it is essential you make a conscious effort to create opportunities for your team to get to know each other. Without the benefit of daily face-to-face interactions, your team does not have the opportunities that would naturally occur if everyone were working together in the same location—that is, to get to know each other and build strong working relationships. Therefore, you must take the lead to create as many opportunities as possible to help your team get to know each other personally, as well as learn about each other’s work responsibilities, skills and capabilities. By completing this course, you will understand the challenges and obstacles managers face when leading remote teams. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute).
