As more and more of our interactions happen digitally, we will continue to experience new forms of miscommunication and misunderstanding. The solution will not come from new technologies. Instead, the solution is in our understanding of the new rules of engagement; in building a communication skill set that reflects the demands of this digitally-driven age.
The current global pandemic has changed much in our world, including the way we work. Leading virtual teams is now fundamental to an organisation navigating its way through the current crisis.
Remote communication isn’t easy. This crisis has presented us with 3 kinds of distance in teams – physical, operational and relationship. There is little that leaders can do about the distance between us physically and operationally. There is much that Leaders can do to reduce virtual distance that impacts affinity, rapport and relationships across teams.
Never has the tone or text or formality of a communication been so starkly in profile as now. And the anxiety that already exists is increased which further undermines the productivity and effectiveness available to our teams in their home environment.
Leadership Communication that supports, encourages and develops, is now vital to maintain the effectiveness and efficiency of teams who now have to work remotely. This programme maintains the skills we need to reduce the challenge of virtual distance between people and lead in challenging times.
