Leading with EQ in Virtual or Remote Environments
The COVID-19 pandemic forced many teams to start working remotely. Even for those who are used to working in virtual environments, the events of 2020 have accelerated the intensity and changed the pace. The pandemic has changed how remote working is perceived, and has most likely changed forever, how virtual teams interact. With the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) in leading project teams, it becomes more important while working remotely. Team members may feel isolated and this may contribute to reduced productivity. The leader may also feel the loss of control and could suffer from emotional disconnect. But these situations can be managed effectively. This webinar outlines basic the steps that you can take as a leader of project teams, to ensure that your teams remain engaged and highly productive.
At the end of the webinar, the participant will be able to:
- Outline the three questions they need to consistently answer for those they lead.
- Identify the emotional intelligence skills needed to lead in virtual environments.
- Categorize how to respond to those unspoken questions from their teams.
