Thriving in Virtual Teams - USA & Canada

As humans, we crave three things in order to feel stable:

1. Attention and approval (or "getting along")

2. Status and power (or "getting ahead")

3. Predictability (or "finding meaning")

When these basic psychological needs are not met, our mental health takes a hit, experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety. And as one might guess, a global crisis such as Covid-19 is sure to upend some of those elements.

As a leader it is crucial to reinforce these needs among team members. In the virtual and hybrid environment, it becomes even more challenging. 

In this interactive session, Dr. Sergey Gorbatov will share insights about those psychological needs and practical tools that any leader can use to enable their team members to thrive even when working remotely.

Outside of academia, Sergey is Director, Talent Management at AbbVie, a Fortune 100 company. With over 15 years of experience, Sergey has delivered results in a wide spectrum of roles ranging from HR Operations to Compensation & Benefits to General HR.

Having performed in the HQ, regional and affiliate organizations, Sergey has first-hand knowledge of operating in multinational matrix environments at companies like AbbVie, PMI and Shell.
