About this online masterclass:

It is estimated that the peak of the global COVID-19 lockdown resulted in approximately 700 million remote workers, highlighting the need for virtual leadership and management that is capable and skilled at leading distributed teams. 

What initially started as a temporary measure in response to virus lockdowns seems set to become a longer-term reality.  Global giants such as Mondelez, Barclays and Facebook have already announced the move to permanent work-from-home policies.  The need for skilled virtual leaders and managers to lead distributed teams will become all the more important.

The online Virtual Leadership Upgrade Masterclass with Erik Kruger is a deep, curated and thorough experience that speaks directly to this emerging organisational trend.  Leading distributed teams during COVID-19 and beyond require leaders and managers to be reactive and adaptable.  The session will explore a number of themes including:

  • Leadership and management of distributed teams
  • New skills demanded by a workforce that exists in the office and in the cloud
  • Research-based elements of modern leadership that you have not thought of yet
