Effectively Building and Managing Remote Teams

Course Overview

Thanks to technology and globalization, more and more organizations have teams dispersed across multiple locations—nationally, internationally and globally. The key to managing remote workers is for leaders to adjust management styles and approaches. How is this course different? The number #1 reason managers struggle to manage remote contributors is that the structure is flawed from the beginning, then not consistently maintained, and finally the remote worker becomes disengaged. This program offers leaders a simple, proven way to establish a two-way structure that is engaging, motivational, and consistant.

This course can be taught in full or half-day classroom format, webinar, or micro-learning format. This course is proven to provide manager and supervisors the necessary practical skills to lead remote employees, virtual teams, and mobilized work forces like never before. Leaders will learn techniques and methods to effectively motivate, engage, develop, and manage virtual and remote teams with success.

Ken Zeigler, author of the best-seller Organizing for Success, and past leader of four Fortune 500 companies will be your instructor.
After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Build a culture of consistency, trust, and respect
  • Establish ground rules and communicate your expectations clearly
  • Create a positive climate with meaningful accountability
  • Track productivity/results and share the results
  • Set up a system of recognizing and rewarding remote team members
  • Use different forms of technology to support a virtual workplace
  • Plan and facilitate consistent and effective virtual meetings

As the amount of employees working remotely continues to rise, all leaders, from supervisors to executives need to learn new management strategies to keep these employees inspired, productive and engaged. This course offers research and experience based content, as well as application-based team activities to develop strategies that will solve the real world challenges faced by the workshop participants.

  1. Increase the attendees awareness regarding the shifts in management style and practice needed to create an environment of inclusion and engagement when manage members of a remote team.
