Ways of Working – for managers

A one-day workshop

Agile, hybrid, remote, virtual workplaces… the new Ways of Working that we’re all becoming familiar with are presenting a new challenge for our managers. As our expectations of work change so must we adapt to managing different Ways of Working. As managers we need to have the right skills, tools and techniques to successfully lead our teams in this new work environment.

This workshop explores the key aspects to successfully lead teams that have adopted different Ways of Working. It is a practical session, blending group discussions and exercises with expert trainer input. You will come away with a clear understanding of how to navigate the agile working world as a manager and an action plan to implement this effectively.
