This course provides an analysis of team-based practices with a focus on virtual collaboration and teams that embrace change, manage conflict, foster innovation and ultimately reach the desired outcome. High-performance teams bring culture alignment, which cultivates inclusion and strong communication to create a sustainable and successful organization.
By understanding the right channel to deliver communication, one can influence the richness and scope of the message. Students will explore tools and technology to enhance the virtual communication process.
Work dynamics change when co-workers no longer connect in person, and leaders need to know how to lead in a virtual environment. In this course, students will analyze leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to achieve organizational outcomes at a distance.
Organizational policies, procedures, and standards need to adjust to a remote workforce that mirrors the desired culture. The locations of the organization and employees drive cultural norms and the standards in which the remote workforce follows. This course takes an in-depth look at how working remotely affects the desired culture of an organization.
