What People Say

“Managers who lead virtual teams need both a wider range of skills, more rigour in managing their approach, and a higher level of responsiveness to the needs of the team. This programme develops those capabilities.”
Peter Schibli

"Leading virtual teams, requires a different set of leadership skills. Coming from co-located teams benefitting most from a leader who acts as a facilitator, virtual teams need a manager who provides clearly defined direction and removes all ambiguity from the process. Some of the key leavers to global virtual team leading are, without doubt, communication and the ability to build up trust amongst team members. In a geographically distributed team, trust is measured almost exclusively in terms of reliability. We as leaders need to concentrate on creating a highly defined process where team members deliver what the organization expects from them, clearly defined roles and responsibilities and that we as leaders are held accountable. Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses".
Steffen Bjerregaard, Head of Group Procurement
