Episode #112: Marcy Connors: A Master Practitioner Shares Best Practices on Coaching Virtual Teams and Team of Teams
For businesses, big and small, one reality is an ever-growing workforce that is very mobile and could be based anywhere. Another reality is organizations becoming more team-based structures. This provides both opportunities and challenges to scaling leadership. Especially with different teams working in different time zones, with some team members working partial hours.
Virtual team coaching can help to effectively and quickly scale leadership in a geographically dispersed organization. For companies moving at pace, virtual team coaching can help leadership teams to map out where cross-collaboration needs to happen and create the virtual conditions for shared leadership to emerge and continuously improve.
If you are a business leader or team coach looking to expand your understanding of how to go about using virtual team coaching to scale shared leadership listen to my conversation with Mary Connors in this episode of the Team Coaching Zone podcast.
Mary is an expert in large scale organizational change and virtual team leadership with a passion for bringing people together to achieve results globally. Listening to Mary talk through several case studies was eye-opening and fun. She brings 30 years executive coaching and consulting experience through her business Connors Davis & Company to the conversation, as well as 25 years’ experience in the design of Leadership and Change programs in the MBA departments of both US and international universities. There’s lots of good stuff here… top tips, stories, and as both Mary and I work with a number of family businesses, some good banter around trends we see happening with intergenerational teams. Enjoy!
