It’s a kind of magic: Working effectively in remote teams

Our work situation has shifted in recent years. More and more of us are working in teams that are distributed across different locations, countries and sometimes even continents. It is not enough to learn to use online tools to communicate and collaborate with our team mates. Our teams now work across geographies, time zones, organizational boundaries, and disciplinary and cultural gaps.

Finding agreements, giving feedback, or simply discussing some work challenge, which used to be about the contents, can now become really complicated discussions ending in misunderstandings or even conflict. This new situation requires us to unlearn habits that had once served us well and adopt new cooperation processes.

Our interactive webinar series will look at different challenges of remote teams and each webinar gives concrete tips how to improve collaboration, engagement and performance within your team. The webinars are free and each will have space for only 30 participants.

What others say about our trainings?

Some of the material seems obvious. But that’s the problem! We often forget or overlook the obvious. It’s very much worth the time investment.

–Training Participant

Radical Inclusion is also a virtual team. There is much experience in all areas of virtual work. They know about what counts in this specific collaboration environment.

–HR manager

I learned the power of using visuals instead of powerpoint text slides in an intercultural and distributed team context.

–Product manager

I had never thought it could be possible to hold a conflict resolution meeting virtually. After the training, I know at least that I will try.

— Department head, Global controlling

No big theories, but one or two plausible concepts that helped me structure the team development process in my global project team.

— Project manager
