Managing Teams Remotely

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Many services are finding that they need effective ways of managing teams remotely – staff may be based in various locations or they may be working from home at times.
In general, it has been found that the same management principles apply when managing a team remotely but they need to be applied in more deliberative way and communication needs to be more proactive and clearer. Processes for supervision and support may need to be redesigned. Further, we need to acknowledge that some staff members may find that staying connected through technology is a significant challenge.
We will explore issues that you may be experiencing, discuss strategies and trial a range of resources.
In this workshop we will look at:
• potentials and issues in working remotely
• key strategies for effectively managing staff remotely
• strategies for strengthening team work on-line
• designing approaches for staff support
• online supervision
• using solution focused questions with staff – in supervision and for quick on-line chats.
