Managing Remote Teams

Remote working becomes more and popular as employees come to expect employers to offer it as a default, leaders are now dealing with new ways of working and the challenges that come with it.

Stressful situations can accentuate issues especially when members of a team are working from home. It has become crucial to know how to build team cohesion in these situations when members are not physically present and failure to do so can result in slowed work ethic and loss of morale.

This course offers an in-depth insight as to what can be done to deal with stressful remote working situations. You will receive clear guidance on how to build plans that will help alleviate in times of stress.

Managing Remote Teams is a trending online course within our Leadership & Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each participant gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
