Delivering Innovation in a Distributed Team
This half-day workshop will help you gain critical, actionable tools that will improve your distributed team’s ability to perform, innovate, and collaborate remotely.
Insights and Outcomes
Massive changes to the way people work are prompting us to re-examine how employees build relationships, handle meetings, and produce individual work. Managers of teams that rarely or never meet in person need to adopt new strategies to foster innovation, communication, and creative thinking.
This course is custom built for leaders of teams that must produce innovative new ideas for their products or clients despite the challenges of working in a distributed environment.
In a series of small discussions and exercises hosted virtually, we’ll explore the following concepts, offering specific understanding of how they contribute to innovation and what practices will draw out employee creativity wherever they work:
- What is Creative Thinking? How does it contribute to innovation in distributed teams?
- Why do you need “T-shaped” people and “I-shaped” people?
- How do you encourage people to have “hallway conversations” when hallways don’t connect them?
- What structures can be used in virtual meetings to encourage innovation?
