The Coronavirus pandemic has demanded a major shift for workplaces as leaders everywhere are struggling to adapt from leading in the office to leading online. Since the 70s, many organizations have relied on in-person leadership and collaboration to get their jobs done. So, for some, making the shift to 100% virtual leadership is a major challenge. Whether your organization has experience with work-from-home positions or has been forced to adapt (and fast!), one thing’s for sure– leading through a screen is not the same as leading on the scene.
We understand how challenging it can be to lead a team of people, period– regardless of a major shift in scenery. But the good news is, you don’t have to step on the same land mines many leaders have in order to learn how to lead effectively online. We’ve rounded up 3 barriers you can avoid so you can make the shift more easily and be well on your way to leading your virtual team to success.
We will identify strategies for:
- Overcoming limiting beliefs about the “way work should be.”
- Challenging negative assumptions about employees.
- Tackling vulnerability and its impact on your leadership.
- Creating results-focused environments by shifting from work activity to work output
- Fostering community in a remote environment
