While some individuals have benefitted and enjoy this new, hybrid working arrangement, others have found it challenging. If you are managing a team of hybrid or 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?

Duration: Two half-days
Sectors: Public and private

The aim of this Leadership Academy workshop is to provide attendees with practical guidance in order to support their staff and teams working remotely. There will be an opportunity to consider numerous tools and techniques that will help colleagues tackle the issues and challenges of managing remote and hybrid teams. This workshop is a blend of sharing best practice with practical exercises where the attendees will share their relevant insights and discuss the implications that are context specific. The gap between the workshops will give participants the time to reflect on the tools, techniques and discussions and consider how they may apply the best practice to their own environments.

  • Avoid the typical management mistakes
  • Identify opportunities for quick wins
  • Have motivating conversations

For the organisation:

  • Focus on health and wellbeing


The workshop is open to all roles and services; it is not limited to personnel working within ICT or digital services.

“Thought provoking and enjoyable”

“It was a superb session; I had wondered what we could have been talking over and considering for a day-long session, but it was the right duration, and more importantly you put people at their ease, so I think we had a good opportunity to air views and pick up the challenges. Thought-provoking and enjoyable, thank you.”
