Overview:

In this 60 minute webinar, Tamara shares her experience as a Virtual Manager of High Performing Teams inside of Fortune 500 organizations.

Every organization should be prepared work in a virtual workplace and it is imperative to train the high performing teams to be successful in the Virtual Workplace. "In your current work environment, even if you have team members are generally co-located; there will be opportunities wherein team members are working remotely. This could be the need to work from home or in a customer’s location. The team's ability to perform optimally should not be compromised because team members are not sharing a physical space.”

Why you should attend: Managers need to remain relevant by upgrading their skills to incorporate the process and technology necessary for creating effective virtual teams.   

Managing a virtual team is fast becoming more the rule than the exception in organizations. These teams may be distributed across town, across the globe, the team may travel or they may work in a common office space but communicate via e-mail to their co-workers across the hall. The workplace is changing and as effective managers, we must also change and recognize that "work is something that we do and not a place that we go."

Instructor:

Tamara was challenged as a new manager in 1988 as she did not share an office with her new team but, instead, her team members were located across the United States. This became a pattern in Tamara's management career in that she has never been co-located with her teams. This unique experience of building high-performing virtual teams, long before technology or theories were readily available to support the virtual workplace, allows Tamara to bring Fortune 500 experience to assist organizations in making a successful transition to a virtual workplace. Her expertise is focused on topics to help organizations create a successful virtual workplace: Virtual Management Skills and High Performing Virtual Teams.

Tamara proudly serves as a Vice President of a Fortune 500 organization and is a passionate advocate for the Virtual Workplace. Currently, Tamara has a high performing Virtual Team that is located across the US and this team continues to exceed set goals and expectations of the organization. Tamara has consulted with businesses focused on obtaining outstanding results in the virtual workplace to include telework, outsourcing and offshoring. She has worked with organizations in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom on Operational Efficiencies and Virtual Workplace and Management topics. Tamara holds an MBA and professional certifications in both Change Management and Business Process Management.
