Supporting and developing growth in a virtual world requires new approaches and a different mindset than when managing people you see every day. This becomes even more complex when you are seeing some people in the office and some are at home. Remote team management can work incredibly well, but it requires a re-wiring of more familiar ways of working.

How do you pick up on what is causing concerns or anxiety? How do you know where people are flourishing and what needs development? How do you get the balance right between productivity and personal progression? What are the signs that someone is struggling?

This is an interactive online course lasting 3.5 hours that covers some of the core components of how to be a successful manager in a remote and hybrid working world.

In this course you will learn how to:

  • Build on core principles of management and adapt for remote/hybrid working
  • Put in place the right channels of communication
  • Identify individual styles and what that means for remote management
  • Understand how to support your team’s development and coach remotely
  • Inspire confidence (and self-confidence) in your leadership
  • Build and maintain (remote) rapport with your line reports
  • Identify and overcome challenges and pitfalls

The course will be delivered through a combination of teaching, practical exercise and group discussions.
