Effectively Leading Remote Teams - can it be done?

Description

How to balance performance objectives with engagement and maintaining a sense of wellbeing.

Whilst there are lots of blogs and webinars on leading remotely there are very few leaders who have done this successfully over the long-term.

The current situation demands that leaders respond and adapt to new circumstances. This may require refining practices, approaches and language so that their team can succeed in a remote-work environment for as long as it takes.

In this webinar Deb will bring together 25 years of virtual leadership practice with the latest research, thinking and best-practice in this field.

The content explores best-practice, proven, practical techniques for: 

  • Understanding the key differences when leading remote teams, especially in highly volatile environments.
  • How to prioritise the operational meeting structures and content that will work best for your organisation considering any dependencies. 
  • How to communicate and create shared agreements when you can’t ‘see’ or stand next each other – it does change things!
  • How to hold effective meetings to ensure both quality discussion and high levels of participation. 
  • How to do the ‘small things’ that are never small at all – such as giving and receiving feedback, noticing wins and progress.
  • Best practice performance management including a practical model to help you understand what level of detail you should be working at.
  • Communicating performance expectations, exploring what needs to be negotiable right now and how to discuss these elements.
  • How to stay connected when we don’t ‘see’ each other for long periods of time.
  • Maintaining development and learning opportunities for their team when traditional sources are limited. 
  • Supporting resilience, wellbeing and work/life balance for employees while they work from home.

This session will be interactive and includes the opportunity for Q&A. The slides include ‘how to’ guides and further reading references.

Learning Outcomes:

  • practical strategies to manage a geographically dispersed team effectively. 
  • how to hold effective meetings, generate discussion, contribution and drive outcomes in a virtual environment. 
  • how to lead virtual teams effectively to drive performance whilst maintaining connection 

Suited to:

Professionals, managers and business owners who now need to lead a team of people who are working remotely. 

This is an excellent introduction for those who want to understand more about leading remotely for the first time and for experienced professionals it will update existing skills sets with some of the latest thinking and research resulting from COVID-19.
