“With such a diverse group from multiple time zones and different countries, we wanted to steer away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to leadership development. The virtual experience was the best solution for our needs.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating and partnering with CCL for my organization’s early career development program. The CCL team brings with them a wealth of knowledge and we were able to design a successful virtual program for our 2021 participants. Execution of the program was also met with great feedback and I believe CCL has fully embraced the new mode of virtual classrooms with their production team. Looking forward to our 2022 partnership!”

Frequently Asked Questions About Virtual Leadership Training Programs

With workplaces embracing hybrid workplace models, virtual collaboration, and remote learning, many of today’s leaders are being asked to lead their teams online. Effective virtual leadership requires leaders to reexamine their skillsets and mindsets for the future of work — while continuing to solve complex problems. 

Virtual leadership training facilitates learning and development online, versus via face-to-face interactions in a classroom. Our top-ranked virtual training programs have deliberate design, build authentic connections, and foster vibrant experiences so leaders can grow — anyplace, anytime. Not limited by the walls of a classroom, our virtual programs are engaging and research-backed, allowing participants to connect and learn from our experts and their peers around the world. 

Leaders of virtual, remote, and hybrid teams must know how to foster teamwork and collaboration virtually, shift their mindsets, and show up as their best self, no matter where they are. Virtual leaders must also manage polarities and communicate well to increase effectiveness.

While no particular leadership style is better than another for leading virtual teams, there are skillsets and best practices for leading virtual teams and meetings that every virtual leader should keep in mind. Virtual leaders must learn how to lead more mindful meetings, overcome time differences, consider team members’ other commitments, and use technology to communicate in real time.

Virtual leadership training can deliver online leadership development in a variety of formats. At CCL, our live online virtual leadership programs are delivered in an interactive virtual classroom environment, where participants learn and engage with one another and a trained facilitator in real time. Moderated virtual leadership programs aren’t delivered in a live format, but rather asynchronously, giving participants access to a leadership expert and network of fellow participants to interact with and learn from. And self-directed virtual leadership training enables participants to develop their leadership skills online, at their own pace, no matter where they are located. Regardless of delivery modality, though, our research has found that satisfaction with our virtual training programs matches in-person formats.
