Purpose of this course

The course is for anyone who is keen to improve and understand the positive effect and dynamic they can add to a team with the added complexity of remote management.  By taking the time to go through discussions and self-assessments based upon leading management authorities, you will start to understand yourself and the contributions you can make to a team.  Reflecting upon this and your own professional circumstances is also key and where necessary you will be given individual attention to help you diagnose and learn about those aspects which are of particular personal significance to yourself.

Benefits for your organisation

People are an organisation's greatest asset. By ensuring your managers are more effective in managing and dealing with others, your organisation will become more effective itself. More productive meetings, motivated staff, better communication and clear proactive leadership will have a huge impact on your organisation’s effectiveness in achieving its goals.

Benefits for you as an individual

As a manager much of your results are determined by your relationships with others whether you are influencing, delegating, collaborating or leading. Learning how to work effectively with your own staff and others will have a huge impact on your effectiveness.  For some this was hard enough face to face but we are now forced to explore this from a remote home working perspective, this course will give you the skills you need to still be successful within this environment.
