How to brilliantly manage remote teams

The session is geared specifically to teams who will be managing some or all of their team remotely.

How do you manage a person or team eectively when you don’t physically see them often? This is particularly difficult if the team is suddenly dispersed. This session will cover the essentials and allow you to think about how the dynamic of a team changes when people don’t all sit in the same physical space.

How do you as a leader manage this, keep people resilient and productive and support a strong sense of team? There will be practical advice on adapting your communication style to reassure and keep the team focused.

What the session will cover

  • How to instil a strong sense of team purpose and why this is key to motivation
  • How to keep your team focused and agree the core priorities
  • Tips and techniques to run remote meetings brilliantly so everyone can contribute
  • The kinds of distance issues to consider – physical, operational and affinity
  • Why trust is fundamental and how to develop it
  • The five questions you need to know the answer to and talk to your team about
  • How to hold individuals to account and motivate to deliver
  • How to help your team manage their anxiety, and keep up resilience.
