Remote or Hybrid Management
As remote and hybrid working arrangements have rapidly become the new norm, many managers will find themselves at a loss to know exactly how to effectively lead their teams from a distance. Even with access to the very best technology, they are still faced with new challenges around motivation, communication, quality control, efficiency and ongoing development. For any business to survive these challenging times, we all need two things – a little luck and some really effective remote leadership.
In moving towards more flexible working arrangements, it is vital that your leaders and indeed individual contributors adapt to the new working arrangements as quickly and easily as possible. There are three overarching considerations:
- Establishing and maintaining behavioural guidelines for remote and hybrid working
- Recognising the critical role that effective communication plays in maintaining motivated and productive remote workers
- Understanding and implementing the appropriate leadership styles that have a positive impact on hybrid working
In response to the global pandemic, many managers and team members will be facing the prospect of leading and working remotely for the first time. Our programmes have therefore been designed to equip all those dealing with this new way of working with the tools, confidence and motivation to ensure productivity and performance remains as high as before.
Do take a look at our Remote Management and Leading a Hybrid Team workshops to get a better idea of how we approach this vital subject. Both can be run as standalone workshops or as part of a modular programme.
