Maintaining engagement and productivity in remote teams

Online & fully interactive – LIVE trainer – small groups

Research consistently shows that engaged teams are more productive, happier and deliver better results. But maintaining engagement without the benefits of regular in-person contact can be a challenge for many managers.

Home workers often feel they lack the structure, focus and opportunities for regular communication and feedback that are so important for maintaining engagement at work. This course provides managers with the skills and confidence to provide the support they need.

Led by an expert trainer and with a small group, participants have plenty of chances to discuss their own specific challenges and to get individual advice, as well as to work interactively with their colleagues to build a set of practical techniques and tools that they can put to immediate use.

What participants will learn

This intensive session is designed to have maximum practical impact in a short time. It provides tools and tips around topics including:

  • Understanding the business benefits of staff engagement
  • 12 proven ways to increase staff engagement
  • Increasing engagement without it taking much extra time
  • Holding effective 1:1s
  • Understanding the link between emotional intelligence and effective leadership
  • Setting effective performance-related objectives
  • Providing effective feedback
  • Increasing ownership and accountability
  • Increasing engagement and interaction within remote meetings
  • Making the most of your prime time
  • Developing decision-making and problem-solving skills in your team
  • Using meetings to drive things forward
  • Holding productive discussions during virtual meetings

After the course every participant receives a PDF course handbook covering everything they’ve learnt on the course.
