Leading a Team in the Digital Era – Join the EaSI Technical Assistance Webinar

The EU is offering this webinar to representatives from microfinance institutions (MFI) interested in strengthening their skills in leading a team online and remotely. The webinar will take place on 8 October.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more and more employees work remotely, and deal with work challenges in a time of volatility, anxiety, fast changing circumstances and many uncontrolled risks. For this reason, leaders must manage not only an organisation that undergoes a digital transformation – but also people that live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and consist of virtual teams of three generations (X, Y, Z) with different skills and attitudes.

This session is part of the webinar series “Leaders in a digital era” and aims to equip microfinance institutions with the necessary skills and tools to effectively lead a team online and conduct successful digital meetings and trainings.

The webinar will focus specifically on improving emotional intelligence needed in crisis: understanding emotional capacities, identifying needs and motivating in the changing work environment. The event aims to help participants in understanding their teams in order to help their staff overcome obstacles and improve effectiveness in the given conditions.
