Managing Virtual Teams Training

Managing a virtual team is different from managing a team that is physically present, and requires a different set of skills for success.

Virtual team management often requires you to deal with cultural differences, time differences, remoteness and technological barriers. This training includes setting up a virtual team, conducting meetings, overcoming special challenges, using appropriate communication tools and dealing with inefficiency. These skills help you to establish and manage a virtual team successfully.

The PD Training Virtual Team Management Training Course provides skills and understanding in handling effective meetings and group sessions, handle poor performing employees and how to use tools to build trust and confidence among employees.

This intensive training course is now available throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra,and Perth.

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
