The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many of us working remotely and using video technology to conduct most of our business. This session will provide you with tips and tools for leading behind a screen both one-on-one and in groups of varying sizes. Leadership during challenging times is more important than ever and we will discuss how to use available technologies to leverage your leadership skills and communicate effectively in a virtual environment.

At the end of this workshop, participants will have learned how to:
