Prelude To Business
“Prelude is a trust accelerator. It revealed assets in our team previously hidden”
By 2020, it’s expected that more than 1.3 billion people will work remotely. Much of this work will occur on virtual teams that are cross-functional and cross-cultural in make-up. More than two thirds of multinational companies already use them. Despite many compelling benefits, working with distant others on a ‘disembodied’ basis is much more challenging and complex than traditional co-located teams. Simply put, it is extremely difficult to build relationships and trust with essentially “virtual strangers”.
People generally “underestimate the challenges of working with one another through a virtual platform”. Most are therefore unprepared upon joining a virtual team. The result is costly both financially and psychologically. A critical gap therefore exists between the promise and performance of most virtual teams. Research and practice shows that trust is essential to high performing virtual teams. New ways are needed to create online equivalents for the natural bonding that occurs within traditional teams. The Prelude Suite™ helps transform virtual strangers into teammates through a compact,3-Step experiential learning process.
The Prelude Suite™ is ideal resource for those working with and on virtual teams including Project Managers, Team Leads, Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, Facilitators, Consultants, Trainers, Online Instructors, and Educators.
The Prelude Suite™ is ideal for empowering today’s cross-functional, cross-generational, and cross-cultural teams. It helps foster multidimensional thinking and interdisciplinary teamwork.
Training is offered in a compact online course involving theory and practice. Prelude is easy to apprehend and deploy.
The Prelude Suite™ is modular and may be adapted to scheduling needs. Small teams need about 2.5 hours. Larger teams will need more time i.e. two sessions of 2 hours each. .
