Overcoming the Challenges of a Virtual Team

Tue, 10 Mar 2020 - 12-2pm (Lunch & Learn)Intercultural Management850

Enhance your business performance across countries, time zones and cultures


In today’s business world, it is the rule rather than the exception to be part of at least one remote team, dispersed across countries and time zones. Without the option to easily connect in the office or build trust based on face-to-face meetings, greater effort is needed to achieve effective collaboration within a virtual team. Challenges are augmented by cultural differences in communication and working styles, which can increase misunderstandings and cause a loss of efficiency. It is essential to leverage the benefits and manage the challenges of working with/in a virtual team. 


  • Understand the key benefits and challenges of working remotely.  
  • Understand and minimise potential cross-cultural misunderstandings. 
  • Effectively build relationships, trust and influence in a virtual (multicultural) team. 
  • Use the right communication tools for the right purpose at the right time. 
  • Overcome the unique challenges of working in a virtual team by organising and optimising remote processes and ways of working.  


Business professionals who: 

  • Would like to increase their personal business impact within their remote team 
  • Would like to understand the latest best practices for working in a virtual setting. 
  • Want to improve their remote management skills. 
  • Regularly liaise and communicate with clients and colleagues based in overseas locations. 

What’s more   

  • Innovative and effective online tools: 12 months access! 
  • Nomad’ Profile®: Cultural Profile, Comparison tool, Country Packs 
  • Nomad’ Network®: preparing & following up on the training 
  • A theoretical as well as practical and concrete approach
