Managing Remote Workers
Managing the productivity of a team of people with different needs, skills and personalities is a difficult job. Managing them remotely poses even more challenges.
Managers of remote workers need to ensure their team is working efficiently, happily and to a shared agenda whilst team members work independently, without supervision and without regular face-to-face contact.
The Managing Remote Workers training course provides managers of remote teams with a toolkit of techniques for strengthening relationships within their team, and maintaining motivation, engagement and shared goals.
