Effective Leadership and Virtual Team Building During Crisis

May 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm






Effective Leadership and Virtual Team Building During Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has moved the world from complexity to chaos, and people are feeling it everywhere. Business leaders are under tremendous pressure to make and remake plans and to help staff who, in turn, are also under tremendous pressure.

In this 1.5-hour webinar, effectiveness and virtual collaboration expert Christy Pettit will help leaders map out a strategy that allows for managing the day-to-day work while being nimble and responsive to constantly emerging challenges and opportunities.

This interactive session will introduce the leadership effectiveness checklist – a step-by-step process to pace yourself and maximize capacity to deliver results while managing expectations, including:

Setting priorities and finding the balance between focus and flexibility

Creating a system to support yourself, the people and the business

Strategies for cultivating employee engagement and positive work culture in a virtual environment.
