Enhancing Global Virtual Teams Through Training

Enhancing Global Virtual Teams Through Training | Creating Connections | Scoop.it
Much of today’s work is accomplished in global virtual teams, but how effectively is training preparing these teams to succeed? As an expected way of operating to accomplish results in most large organizations, global virtual teams are increasing as a result of globalization, technology, and competition for scarce talent. The stakes are high for these teams to deliver, but too often, they are not fully effective due to complexity, lack of team cohesion, competing priorities, and other factors. Training can play an important role in driving performance to a higher level.

How to Deal With a Difficult Co-Worker

How to Deal With a Difficult Co-Worker | Creating Connections | Scoop.it

It's all too common. Agendas conflict, personalities clash. People get hired for their great skills who turn out to have major issues. Whatever the source, when a colleague (or subordinate or boss) is driving you up the wall, it's up to you to figure out how to cope.

Exiling them to a desert island probably isn't an option, but here are six strategies that can help:

How to Stay Focused When You’re Working from Home

How to Stay Focused When You’re Working from Home | Creating Connections | Scoop.it

No commute. No drive-by meetings. No dress code. Remote working can seem like a dream — until personal obligations get in the way. These distractions are easy to ignore in an office, but at home it can be difficult to draw the line between personal and professional time.

 

Consider when you’re working on a project and get a call from a friend. You know you need to finish your work, but you feel rude for not talking when you technically could. Or think about when you’re planning your daily to-do list, but also need to decide when you’ll squeeze in your personal commitments. Taking the time to put a few loads of laundry in the washer midday can seem like a quick task — until you find yourself making up that work time late at night. In the end, it’s never entirely clear when you’re really “on” or “off.”
