Content

Learn how remote working can be more beneficial, productive and collaborative than working in an office environment. Explore the benefits of a remote employee working  and why more companies are employing it and seeing huge productivity gains.  

Learn a new way of thinking and working and how to approach this new working pattern.

Learn how to lead a team to more productive ways of working when going remote and how to keep remote employees on track. Remote employees are more apt to stray off course, by focusing on what they think is important, rather than what you think is important.  It’s not that they are being malicious, they can just become easily disconnected with the overall objectives of the team and company, when they are teleworking. Learn how to keep them on the right path, by setting clear visions and expectations, so there is no confusion on how they can be a successful part of the team.

Learn how to support people through the transition and beyond, whatever their personality type. With a virtual team, learn how to make sure that they are getting the support and the information they need but without information overload. Learn how to establish communication protocols and how to ensure that they are using the correct communication tools.  Establish efficient formal and informal virtual communication methods. Explore the different communication tools and channels to use, learn how to make meetings effective, and how to ensure you are engaged in accurate communication with your team, so they are getting the info they need to work smartly and more effectively than if they were in one office.

Learn how to build team strength and understanding and which tools are the most effective for different situations. If not managed correctly, remote teams are really not teams. Instead they become a bunch of individuals working alone in silos that happen to report to the same manager. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. If led correctly, remote teams can be strong, closer, and work better together than those based in the same office. Learn how to create dynamic and interactive teams that have a closely woven team community, and strong trust, with mutual respect. Learn how you can ensure that your communication with them is clear and credible. 

Learn how to create accountability and how to adapt the typical patterns of effective remote working. One of the biggest fears about remote teams is that they will not be working because you can’t see them.  Unfortunately, this can lead to a micro-management style that gets you the opposite results of what you want.  Learn how to hold your team accountable without falling into the trap of micro-manager which is demotivational.  Learn how to empower your employees, provide them with autonomy and help them to learn to manage themselves and create an accountability tracking system.

Learn how to coach remote employees and understand how to facilitate productive remote meetings. The remote leader needs to be able to effectively coach and develop remote employees when they are not based in the same location. The effective facilitation of a virtual meeting should boost interaction and increase morale and commitment. Learn how to use these meetings to also engage, check in and demonstrate you care and value your remote team and tackle any issues that may arise. Understand the benefits of candid honest feedback and principles of depersonalisation and praise. Learn how to manage conflict using a buddying technique.
