The ATD training network is holding their yearly conference, many subjects, many speakers. This one, grabbed me, Uniting Global Teams: Communicating Virtually for Impact, Inclusion, and Engagement it’s on Tues, May 23. And although I cannot go, as trainers and knowledge workers, you may want to go. (BTW, we are ALL trainers and knowledge workers.)
As an employee you must understand global consequences of our actions on earth, and the meaning of what happens HERE, has an effect “over there”. Employers want their teams to have global understanding, cultural acceptance, and curiosity / the drive to get along.
As technological advances and other disruptors drive companies to become flatter, more global, and more matrixed, employees at all levels need to get better at working together through virtual channels. But that’s easier said than done. This session will share best practices and frameworks you can incorporate into your training and onboarding programs to unite your global teams and cut down the time it takes to get them working together harmoniously and efficiently. You’ll also be able to see the practices in action, because one of the speakers will be using Skype to lead the session. — Class Description
