Managing Remote Teams

Talking Ape
“Whether to extend their talent pool, appeal to a younger workforce, or for sustainability, my prediction is that the term ‘virtual manager’ will have a short shelf-life. All management will be, at least in part, virtual.”

– Kristi Hedges

In the current business climate leaders face a considerable challenge in leading and managing teams across significant geographical distances.

But the essential aspects of leadership requirements are still required. Leaders still need to communicate a clear vision, build trust and motivate and grow individual team members. All of this has to be done through a myriad of technology. This webinar addresses how to lead a remote team and fulfil all these obligations by maintaining psychological safety and morale across different personality styles (from those feeling isolated to those feeling overwhelmed.) It also looks at how to build trust and performance across distances and helps leaders focus on the key skills and mindsets required for leading remotely. Finally, how to look for signs of overextension, fatigue or isolation.
