Move the Room: How to Successfully Train Online
In the past few months, working from home went from being a great perk to becoming a necessary part of life. Since the traditional face-to-face team structure is no longer an option for many of us, companies are tasked with finding digital solutions to stay alive. This transition comes with a range of complications, from hiring and on-boarding new employees without being able to interact with them face-to-face to quickly scaling up current employees so they are prepared to face the challenges ahead to retaining your key talent in the face of a financial crisis.
Overall, training your employees in a virtual setting is very similar to training them face-to-face. However, communication and team building occur more naturally in face-to-face environments. Because of this, leaders and trainers should take deliberate actions to build in activities and practices that are vital to building a stronger sense of team.
This program will help equip leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead virtual training and engage with employees in the digital environment.
- Create a virtual training environment based on relationships and camaraderie
- Establish clear expectations based on mutual trust and respect
- Communicate effectively and use technology that fits the situation
- Identify ways to foster an environment of virtual teamwork, group effort, and cooperation
