Are you part of a virtual team? More and more businesses are going global and more professionals are working from home. Businesses are increasingly relying on virtual teams, or telework, to accomplish their team goals and team member objectives.

This course identifies the characteristics of a successful teleworker, the personal benefits of teleworking, why teleworking makes sense, how to stay focused with self-motivation hacks, how to stay motivated despite periodic loneliness, the best way to communicate with your virtual team members, and how-to's for improving information flow.
