Time & Location
About the event
In the online workshop Virtual Collaboration in a Global Setting we will be focusing on working remotely, driving projects from a distance, facilitating engaging online meetings AND we will work on these aspects adding the global lenses of cultural awareness and cross-cultural communication. The workshop consists of 4 online sessions each 2 hours long.
The workshop gives you:
- Theoretical insights about the virtual premise
- Ready-to-use advice on how to prepare and facilitate engaging online meetings
- Tools to strengthen remote team performance and online collaboration
- Techniques on how to make all voices heard in the virtual context
- Knowledge to build trust as a cultural investigator
- Insights to use the practical 4R cultural model as a cultural GPS
- Tips on how to adapt your cross-cultural communication with remote colleagues
The workshop Virtual Collaboration in a Global Setting is relevant for you who works in a global context with international colleagues/partners and often facilitate virtual meetings, you do online events and/or drive global projects with a distributed team.
4 online sessions @ 3-5pm CET on Sep 14, 21, 28 and Oct 5, 2020.
The workshop is delivered in English with a maximum of 12 participants.
The workshop is offered as an open enrolment learning opportunity. Participants from different companies, various industries and countries will be learning together.
A pre-workshop survey is sent to all participants to learn about individual experiences and challenges. The survey inputs are used to customize the workshop design and to fit needs expressed.
During the workshop interactive exercises, breakout group discussions, and group dialog using whiteboards are utilized with the core focus of involving all participants and maintaining a high level of engagement. A range of different online tools will be used and demonstrated for inspiration.
Participants should plan for approx. 1.5 hours of prep work per week as articles and videos will be assigned to view and discuss with learning partners between the scheduled 4 sessions.
Bringing your new learning back to your work is essential. Throughout the workshop we focus on how new knowledge can be translated into skills: What will you do differently with your team? Which habits will you change in your online work – and how?
