Dealing with Virtual Conflict
Office conflict is an unavoidable workplace occurrence; regardless of location. But the unique characteristics of a virtual setting make the probability of conflict higher. Because when we take away the ability to physically interact with one another, we have to rely on technology to communicate. And communicating messages via technology takes away the personal connection humans thrive upon.
The results? Distrust, damaged relationships, decreased morale, and ultimately, increased turnover.
Why does this matter? Because each year, more organizations continue to embrace remote employees and teamwork – a quick email check will most likely confirm that the majority of those you work and interact with probably don’t sit in the next cubicle every day, if ever.
According to a recent online study from globalworkplaceanalytics.com, the U.S. remote workforce has increased to over 105% since 2005.
And while advances in technology and communication have not only made the virtual workplace easier and faster than ever, there are a multitude of unique challenges in managing remote teams.
If you’re tired of the miscommunication that often breaks down and destroys virtual teams, join us for this powerful webinar, where you’ll learn specific tips and techniques to dissolve conflict and create collaboration among virtual teams.
You’ll learn the importance of developing a team rhythm, where trust and collaboration is established. With the methods you’ll discover during this 60-minute event, you’ll learn how to cultivate an environment on your virtual team where everyone is on the same page, speaks the same team language and are masters at communicating with each other.
