Building and Managing High-Performance Teams

The COVID-19 pandemic has possibly caused the most significant shift in work culture of our lifetime. It quickly furthered techniques such as working-from-home, digital transformation, diversity, and inclusion and made them become an immediate reality. The next few months and years contain a great deal of uncertainty about how people will work and interact in a global economy that is not yet free of the disease and its enormous impact. So how can companies, tech sector businesses, adapt to this new normal? Alberto Silveira is passionate about ready sharing his proven methodology, insights, and practical experiences. It’s a “future of work” that was already on its way before 2020 and is now here, offering enormous opportunities for companies willing to join this new technological revolution. Learn how the distributed model is vital to high-performance teams in the new normal. Understand the difference between offshore, nearshore, remote, and distributed teams, and why these distinctions matter. Find out how to keep people engaged and connected. Discover how to measure the mood and performance of teams. Understand what leadership, team management, and productivity really mean in this “new normal” economy. People can and will continue to work from anywhere, and it’s a concept that will continue to gain traction. Alberto will show you how you and your company can benefit from managing an office without walls.
