Managing remote teams is not new. Many organisations have had people spread widely over sales territories, regional offices, international leadership teams and so on for decades. The Covid-19 pandemic created an immediate and unprecented shift to remote working that remains in place for many. It’s clear that in a post-Covid working life, we will all be working remotely on a permanent basis or shifting to a hybrid working arrangement.

Running a team remotely has challenges, but fundamentally the management role remains the same. It is being responsible for people’s performance and wellbeing when you’re not physically able to work with them and only connected virtually.

This programme is for you if

Managing Remote Teams is ideal for mid to senior level managers and leaders who are getting to grips with the shift to managing a remote team.

Alongside the day to day management of projects and delivery this programme will enable you to understand and set expectations through dialogue and discussion enabling setting of goals and management of performance in a virtual setting.
