An Urgency in Learning to Work Virtually

There's an urgent need in education, equally shared across sectors, industries, countries, name it. Everyone needs to learn how to collaborate and work in virtual teams--right now.
NetAge has a method that works, tested by hundreds of organizations, like those on the right.
We provide executive seminars, train-the-trainer programs, and the occasional individual virtual team workshop on how to work more effectively across boundaries--whether departments, organizations, enterprises, and industries, and/or between buildings, cities, countries, and continent, and/or among ranks, cultures, disciplines, and cognitive styles. We provide vision, theory, methods, and stories that simplify cross-boundary work. Delivered face-to-face and online.
How is our education different from others? We’re the originals who lterally write the books: Networking, The Age of the Network, Virtual Teams. This is our specialty, our core expertise, 25 years in the making.

Leading Networked Organizations
Executives no longer can walk down the hall to talk to figure out what’s going on. What is the reality of leading organizations that stretch around the globe? What must executives do differently? What new mental models do they need to understand the complexity of their organizations?
