Globalisation, digitalization and the COVID-19 pandemic are steadily contributing to the rising presence of virtual work. However, virtual or remote work is inherently different than working in an office and requires a different set of skills to master, both as a remote worker or as a manager of remote team members. This course looks at how to communicate in an engaging and motivating manner in our digital world, and how virtual collaboration and networking is enabled by connecting people and technology. We look at which competencies are required for such effective connectedness, those to build mutual trust and those to provide psychological safety across remote teams. By combining theory and practical application, the course creators share valuable and highly applicable know-how. You will be able to progress and complete the course at your own pace, learning through problem-based videos, interactive exercises, games and expert insights.
