Practical and Powerful Ways to Lead a Remote Workplace
2020 has thrust organizations, big and small, into working from home. Some organizations were ready for this shift while others were not. This course offers strategies to successfully lead a newly remote workforce, whether the shift is temporary or long lasting.
A remote team demands that leaders be laser focused on getting fundamentals right: clear goals, clear communication, great management and great coaching. Like a coach, a virtual leader must leverage team members' individual and collective strengths and coach to improve weaknesses. The challenges of leaders leading their teams and organizations remotely are many. How can one lead effectively when we’re now greeting each other with instant messages instead of a smile and a wave? When we have to meet via video conference instead of in a conference room? The confluence of all the factors this year has brought about is unique and leaders must adapt quickly to meet the needs of their business and their teams. This course is designed to give you a solid foundation of communication and leadership ideas and examples, so that the people in your charge have a leader who is prepared to meet the seen and unseen challenges of the remote work environment.
