Overview

It looks like we will be working from home for some time to come. While some have benefited and enjoyed this arrangement others have found it challenging. If you are managing a team of remote workers, a few important questions need to be answered:

  • How will I get the best out of individuals?
  • What is the best leadership style for my team?
  • How do I know people are doing what they are supposed to be doing?
  • What is the best way to support my team?

This workshop will give you proven methods and structures to help you motivate your team successfully and improve productivity whilst working virtually.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Use management tools to achieve great results
  • Discover insights into what motivates people
  • Avoid the typical management mistakes
  • Identify opportunities for quick wins
  • Have motivating conversations
