BALI presents Managing Teams - Online course

Training Course

16 Feb 2021
Virtual Training, Zoom
Opening times:
10am-3pm with virtual breaks

2020. What a year. No one planned for it. Few were prepared. Yet, somehow, the world of business kept turning. Slowly and hesitantly at first. But turn it did. So much so that big companies such as Google, Facebook and NatWest have told their staff not to come back into the office until late 2021. Or maybe even never.

Managing people remotely is here to stay. As the number of people Working from Home (WFH) continues to grow, managers must understand how to support people from a distance. Because while WFH has clear advantages, it also creates its own challenges.

Businesses are waking up to the fact that the workspace still has a role to play – especially when it comes to that most social of activities, innovation. Mental health and stress-related illnesses are also rising in the workforce as social isolation becomes a real issue. Work cultures and personal relationships can come under enormous strain when you never get to see your colleagues face-to-face.

These and other reasons are why this course has been created. The programme outlines the latest best practices on how to provide employees with the trust, tools, and structure they need to be successful in a virtual environment. Attend the course and you will learn everything from how remote working changes interpersonal dynamics to how to have better (and fewer) meetings. With a mixture of theory and practical tips, you’ll come away from the day with suggestions on how to get more from your people at a distance—including how to provide remote coaching and feedback—and become a better long-distance leader.
