Leading in a Virtual Environment


This workshop will focus on supporting leaders and HR professionals to lead more effectively in a virtual environment. With the pivot to a remote workplace due to Covid-19, and many companies remaining remote or returning to a hybrid work environment, it is critical for managers to increase their ability to lead remote teams as effectively as possible. Heidi will share challenges she has heard from her clients, and tips to improve relationships and results leading in a virtual environment. 
Note: If you are leading in an organization that is working together in physical office space, the learning will still be relevant!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what is needed to lead most effectively in a virtual environment.
  2. Strengthen your effectiveness to run remote meetings.
  3. Understand the importance of communication and trust.
  4. HR Professionals will leave with a better understanding on how to support their managers be more effective leaders.

Heidi Werther, MS, CPCC, PCC
Executive Coach & Consultant

A proven leader, starting with her first leadership role at a Fortune 500 Company at the age of 23, Heidi leverages her passion, success, and focus on communication, to support and empower leaders and teams to increase their effectiveness and drive optimal business results.

With roles including Vice President Human Resources, Sales Vice President, and Marketing Manager, as well as working with boards including as board chair, Heidi understands the importance of investing in leaders at all levels to ensure they are equipped to lead with curiosity, empathy, and the belief in their people's ability to contribute in a meaningful way and succeed. With research demonstrating that 60-80% of challenges in organizations result from poor communication between employees, Heidi supports leaders to  communicate clearly and develop coaching skills, and to tap into their fullest potential to engage, motivate, and retain talent.

As a highly trained and experienced executive coach and consultant, Heidi looks at solutions from a global perspective, ones that impact an individual, a team, and the organization as a whole. She begins every engagement with an assessment to fully understand the challenges and problems so that she can partner collaboratively with her clients as they work towards achieving stated goals. Partnering with leaders, from emerging to senior level, Heidi supports them to elevate their leadership skills, self-awareness, and confidence, resulting in improved working relationships, leading to healthier cultures and improved outcomes. Similarly, when working with teams, self-awareness and a focus on communication is critical to success.
