Unlock your Team's Potential to Collaborate and Communicate while Remote

The role of the office is changing, and with increasing employee interest in remote work, team cultures and communication styles are evolving, too. Whether you work in human resources, lead a team or consult with an organization, you are likely looking for best practices to help your team succeed.

This webinar explores how character strengths—the positive parts of an individual’s personality that impact how they think, feel and behave—can be used as a tool to develop effective communication practices. This approach can support both teams working entirely online and those in a hybrid structure due to working restrictions or multiple locations.

When character strengths are activated, engagement and connection follows. Your team will first explore their unique strengths in their VIA Survey Results, and then learn techniques to see and appreciate their teammates’ strengths.

Through live facilitation and group discussion, your team will understand how to co-create an environment that fosters healthy communication and effective collaboration. Plus, your team will no longer see remote working as an obstacle, but as an opportunity to work in more alignment with their strengths.
