Whether it’s Distance Bias or Recency Bias, Zoom fatigue, or virtual team culture challenges, everyone is facing at least one area where they could use a little support.  And, as some organizations start opening their offices again, many people will undergo yet another transition – working in hybrid teams, with some team members back in the office and others still remote.

“Cisco has always had a strong, positive culture. It’s critical that while we are working fully remotely that we continue to build and strengthen that culture.  Virtual Work Insider partnered with us to teach our sales teams the importance of setting the foundations of team culture and actively reinforcing it to ensure engagement, especially as new hires enter the company fully remotely and people rotate to new roles.  By the end of the workshop all participants had created their own culture-building plan to put into action immediately. Every leader in our organization, and beyond, can benefit from Virtual Work Insider’s virtual leadership skills workshops.”
