As the current global situation has accelerated the trend towards remote working, the need for strong virtual leaderships has increased significantly.
Remote working is here to stay too:
Virtual leadership is a form of leadership in which teams are managed via a remote working environment. Like traditional leadership roles, virtual leaders focus on motivating employees, understanding their needs and roles, and helping teams accomplish their goals. They have to put their trust in workers’ capabilities and communicate solely through virtual means, which requires a unique skill set.
In this course, you'll learn key virtual leadership skills with self-paced classes and practice on-demand in realistic simulations, as often as you like.
This Virtual Leadership course teaches you the fundamentals for leading virtually, covering topics including how to give feedback to remote employees, lead meetings and tell stories virtually.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to confidently manage remote teams, regardless of their location.
There are two main parts to this blended course:
Practice your virtual leadership skills in simulations that look and feel like a video conferencing platform.
While practicing various leadership skills, the simulation will analyse your voice and delivery, providing feedback when you've finished on aspects such as confidence, audience perception and speaking pace.
Throughout the simulations, you'll be prompted to interact with your remote team, answer questions and communicate with them.
Active listening is an essential skill when leading remote teams as there's a lot more room for misunderstandings. Practice this in our listening role play exercises.
When you lead with empathy, you create an element of humanity in an otherwise detached virtual environment. Build empathy with a virtual an employee on this video call.
Conflict in virtual teams is more likely to be negative for performance and is more likely to escalate. Practice dealing with a conflict situation in a virtual meeting.
Lead a team in this video conferencing simulation, with 8 other team members dialled in. Get feedback on your presentation with automated analysis.
Both the online classes and simulations run through a web browser, so no additional software or download is required. Unlike other VirtualSpeech soft skills training courses, there is no VR element, so a VR headset is not required.
The simulation has been tested across multiple browsers and runs smoothly on Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Edge.
