About the Course

While it may feel like a new concept, remote and hybrid working has been a feature in many organisations for years, especially within those with a need for geographically dispersed teams to work together. However, as a result of the sudden shift to remote working resulting from the global Covid 19 pandemic, leading and managing remote and hybrid teams has taken on a new and unparalleled urgency. In short, while the pandemic didn’t create the idea of hybrid working, it has been vastly accelerated by it.

Post-pandemic, it appears to be a widely accepted fact that remote working is here to stay. Organisations that refuse to adapt to this new reality face a serious risk of missing out on attracting the best talent into their ranks. Therefore, it is paramount that managers and leaders acquire the skillset needed to operate effectively in this new reality.

This Managing Hybrid and Remote Teams virtual training course is designed to help delegates with these challenges. They will get the opportunity to level up with the latest research into this highly evolving field and leverage their insights to pro-actively work out a management approach that works best in their unique circumstances. Managers and leaders will discover the five essential elements of leading hybrid and remote teams, learn how to align fractured or disconnected teams, and utilise the latest technology to help them succeed against the multitude of challenges they face in this new reality.
