“THE CEO PUBLICATION owns both and websites"


It’s time to adopt Technology-driven Leadership

Working irregular hours makes offices unpleasant. There are conflicting policies and procedures, worries about involvement and trust, and more. For the past 20 years, HR teams have been put on the back burner as a result of the creation of international virtual teams and the response to the pandemic disaster. Instead of taking a firm stance and aggressively collaborating with the business to establish a strong virtual leadership strategy and culture, they have decided to help managers as and when they are needed.

Although the fundamentals of leadership remain the same in both situations, virtual leadership situations present special and important challenges. For executives to actively shape their future collaboration where they are leading rather than being driven by technology, HR has a crucial proactive role to play in developing strategies.

Leaders and managers must be educated and trained

The fact that working and leading in the virtual world is a part of a unique management paradigm with its eccentricities frequently overlooked by organizations. Managers who only replicate their interpersonal interactions online may initially succeed, but soon they reach a deadlock.

The transformation of technology

Organizations fail to consider the long-term effects that different IT platforms may have on teamwork. To promote collaboration, it’s essential to understand which platform to utilize, which features to use, and how to do so. Human resources must forge a connection between technology and psychology to guarantee that leaders consciously cultivate their culture of virtual leadership and collaboration.

Organizing techniques

Many remote workers worry that their efforts would go unappreciated and that this will hurt their chances of promotion. The key concern of managers is how to best monitor employees’ performance in the absence of direct observation. Online performance management and onboarding call for several HR-designed procedures and tools.

Using hierarchy in a different way

Middle management and senior leaders generally receive virtual leadership training, but boards of directors and executive teams do not. In helping boards and executive teams see the need to unlearn and relearn, HR may play a crucial role.

Working from a different vantage point inevitably leads to new perspectives on the identities and roles of leaders, as well as new values relating to cooperation, performance, and teamwork in general, as well as new employer images in which a corporation is no longer associated with a physical location and labour is no longer equated with a specific location. Helping employees and leaders adapt their thoughts and attitudes to this climate will become more strategically important.

Effective virtual leadership will receive more attention as virtual teams spread more widely. Many of the traits and abilities that made leaders good leaders will transfer over as leaders move from traditional teams to virtual teams, but it’s crucial to consider how the distance between team members and leaders will cause certain alterations to their leadership style. The various advantages virtual teams provide to a company can be benefited from to a greater extent by leaders who are more adept at managing virtual teams.
