Webinar: Thriving in Remote Settings: Virtual leadership

CoreNet recently hosted a truly fantastic webinar, titled, Thriving in Remote Settings: Virtual leadership. Moderator James Pack was joined by Kirk Vallis (Head of Global Creativity Capability at Google), Major General Tom Copinger-Symes CBE (Director of Military Digitisation, UK Strategic Command), and Mark Davies (Chief Medical Officer at IBM and Watson Health).

Discussing how to manage teams virtually and lead effectively, the speakers shared thought-provoking insights from the medical, technology, and military sectors.

A few of the key takeaways from the session were:

  • We can’t apply the same leadership principles to virtual environments that we would apply to ‘face to face’ environments; the world has now changed
  • Be aware that everyone approaches a situation from a different point of view and interacts in different ways.
  • Leading in a virtual world relies on the relationships and trust created in a physical world, we should be aiming to use the time we are together to fuel up for the time we are apart. This might influence why we gather in physical workspaces Can we make better use of that time?
  • Delegate to the point of discomfort; trusting team members but being aware when more direction or motivation is needed.
  • Training and learning are now more critical than ever.

A video of the session is available online so make yourself a cup of tea, get comfortable and enjoy – we can promise you, it will be an hour very well spent!

Thank you to all our speakers for their time and insights.

As always, a big thank you to our annual sponsors for their continued support – IWG, IBM, Savills and tp bennett.
