Accomplishing work in the new millennium has become synonymous with “Virtual Leadership”. The current competitive business environment and the changing nature of work and the workforce requires effective leadership that spans the boundaries of time and space to help employees to work together – apart. Leadership of virtual teams is not the same as leadership of face-to-face, co-located teams. Leading a virtual team is more difficult, as it requires a dynamic interaction between technological systems and human systems that the virtual leader has to address and balance for work to be accomplished.

In this practical webinar, you will learn:

  • 4 essentials for virtual teamwork
  • Tools and techniques to facilitate “working together apart” in virtual environment
  • Tips for effective virtual meetings
  • The importance of virtual contracts

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify characteristics of the remote/virtual worker
  • List recommended elements of a virtual team contract
  • Explore steps to avoid discrimination claims
  • Describe wage and hour obligations
  • Describe ergonomics, health risks, and virtual workplace injuries
  • Define essential competencies of leadership in virtual environment

Food for thought. We are exploring moving people towards partial or total remote access. This provided a ton of caveats as well as opportunities. Much of it also related well to current workforce management in a face to face environment.

This Webinar had little to do with the legal aspects of a telecommuting relationship. It was characterized as providing legal guidance and I found it to be worthless. It had more to do with the organizational/psychological behavioral aspects. The description was very misleading.

Excellent webinar. Speaker commented that her voice may be annoying – I did not find it annoying or have any trouble understanding her. This is one of the most useful webinars in which I’ve participated.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio.  You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.

Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.

What is an on-demand webinar?

An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.

Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?

You can stop a recording and later log back in and navigate to any point in the webinar. The system will not force you to view the entire recording from start to finish.

Can I listen to recorded webinars on a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You will be able to listen to any of our on-demand webinars on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Do the webinars qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

Almost all of our webinars are approved for continuing education credit, including CLE (in all states), CCB, CPE, HRCI, IRS and SHRM credit.  Unlike many providers, we don’t charge you any additional fee to process your credit.  If you have specific questions, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Can I still receive Continuing Education Credits if I view the webinar recording instead of the live presentation?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Recorded webinars are not eligible for CLE credit in the following states: AR, KS, MS, NE, and RI. In all other jurisdictions, recorded programs are eligible for credit. In addition, CPE credit is not available for recorded webinars. Please note that recorded webinars are only eligible for a certain period of time based on the jurisdiction. To ask about your specific type of Continuing Education Credit or the requirements in your jurisdiction, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Will I receive a certificate of completion after the course?

Yes. A certificate of completion will automatically be uploaded to your Clear Law Institute account after completing the live or on-demand webinar.

Do I need to be a member to receive a certificate of completion?

No. An account will automatically be created for you when registering for a webinar. You will then be able to access your certificate of completion after completing a webinar.
