Managing Remote Teams

4 - 15
Full Day / Bite Size

Is managing a remote team really that much different to managing a co-located team? Well yes, and no. Fundamentally the skill-sets are the same, but there is no doubt managing a remote team requires some adjustment to the way you do things.

This includes tightening up the Psychological Contracts you have with your team members in terms of expectations, communication and workflow management. Adjustments also include putting in extra effort to cultivate a positive team dynamic and ensure remote workers feel connected to other colleagues as well as the wider organisation. In this tailored and highly practical workshop we will focus on the tools and techniques needed to develop a high performing remote team. You will come away from this workshop with a blueprint that will ensure you lead your remote workers to success.
