TOPIC 1: MANAGING YOUR VIRTUAL TEAM

Our first series of development sessions tackled the issues around managing a virtual team. Some things are pretty much the same as in the "face-to-face" world. 

VIDEO 01: MAKE ROOM FOR RELATIONSHIPS

In the first video of the series, Craig Laviano discusses how virtual work can lead us to under-emphasize the the importance of relationships. Craig also offers some tips on how to make room for relationships in the remote environment.

VIDEO 02: HOW DO WE BUILD OUR NETWORK IN THE REMOTE WORLD?

All leaders need to network: the relationships they build with peers, direct reports, and senior leaders across the organization are all critical to on-going effectiveness. When you're working from home, this presents challenges. 

But also opportunities! There are some great ways to network in the remote environment and in this video Craig Laviano outlines some of the most effective techniques.

VIDEO 03: STRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT CONVERSATIONS ("GROW" MODEL)

There's a tendency when managing virtually to have a laser focus on task—the work that needs to be done. But as a manager you also have a responsibility to help your direct reports develop and grow.

 

Coaching conversations are an indispensable way of doing this, and the GROW model is a widely used model for structuring these conversations.

 

TOPIC 2: VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT

The second session reviewed a number of key principles and practices of performance management that can be applied during the mid-year review process.

More videos will be added soon—so remember to keep checking back.

VIDEO 01: GIVING BEHAVIORAL FEEDBACK—THE "SBIR" MODEL

We're all used to giving task-based feedback, but behavioral feedback is equally important. And yet it can be a little awkward sometimes as conversations can become personal.

That's why it's essential to approach these conversations with a structure in mind: you need to know where you're going, and how to get there.
