Virtual Success: Presentation Outline

Using examples from her own experience, as well as relevant examples from sports, history and the business world, Sheri explains that leading exceptional virtual teams involves four critical steps:

Leveraged Leadership. Not everyone can successfully lead virtual teams. There are very specific skills and competencies that are vital to engaging this level of complexity. Although there are many important components that impact the abilities of successful virtual team leaders, there are three qualities that are essential to virtual team leadership…


Virtual Vision. The power of virtual teams to respond quickly to corporate challenges, pooling both broad and deep expertise, has become an important key to corporate success. However, to get the most from the vast experience, knowledge and perspective of dispersed team members, your leaders will need to use the strength of a vision to bring the team together…


The Collaboration Coalition. Virtual teams have the capacity to become an unimaginable asset in every organization. The coexistence of differences and meaningful participation is a critical component to success in virtual environments. The idea that differences can coexist productively, facilitating meaningful contributions, is a concept that will create a coalition of collaboration in your organization…


Team Trust. On a traditional team, trust evolves as a function of demonstrated action over time. However when working virtually, members typically do not have the opportunity to develop trust in the traditional, gradual, cumulative way. The challenge for your leaders becomes how to build trust rapidly across boundaries and borders…


I conclude with this inspirational challenge:

Exceptional team development across boundaries and borders is the process of aligning and developing the capacity of the team to create winning results. How will you deliver virtual success?
