Virtual Management & Training: Taking Technology to Task

Managing and training virtual teams and the tech-driven process they require can sometimes feel complex or frustrating. Knowing the eight types of workplace technology and which work best for your management and/or training objects is really all you need!

The authors of the recent ATD Press book, The Unashamed Guide to Virtual Management, Ben and Kathy will be joining us to talk with us about how we really do have all the tools we need at our fingertips for the best management and training efforts, we just need to know the best tools for the goals. No matter who you manage or train, where, or what brand of technology - nothing can stop you from becoming a powerful and successful virtual manager with the right insights. 

During the session we will:

  • Apply eight forms of virtual management technology for your best management and training intentions at your job the very next day.
  • Discover a new level of comfort and control with different virtual management technologies for you and your team.
