Live Online Training Workshop

Practical Leadership Tools to Develop Highly-Effective Remote Working Teams

How to develop highly-aligned, focused and productive remote working teams from a distance

Course overview

Unforeseen crises and business challenges are forcing knowledge-based organisations to reconsider their traditional ways of working. Working remotely en masse is the new normal and teams are now collaborating online more than ever.

The immediate and ongoing challenge for leaders and managers is, without a doubt, the ability to build and sustain highly-aligned, focused and productive teams who are not physically present.

In this live online training workshop, people leaders will gain practical leadership knowledge and tools to develop high-performance teams capable of meeting business and organisational goals while working remotely.

This 6-hour 3-Module progressive learning program will deliver tools to help you:

  • Create a safe and supportive working environment by co-creating a team working contract
  • Create an effective goal system (OKRs) to help teams do focused and outcomes-driven work
  • Create a transparent single-source-of-truth team working system (Kanban) that generates higher accountability and ownership, and increases team productivity
