Line management can be a demanding job at the best of times. Even more so when some or all of the team are working remotely.
It’s not that the basic principles are any different, it’s just that the way we apply them is. Some managers have been quick to adapt to the new ways of working. For others, it’s been more of a challenge. But for all of us it’s been something of a learning curve and most of us would admit that there are still some respects in which we could improve.
Hence this flexible programme of bite-sized sessions.
It looks at all those aspects of a line manager’s role that are affected by remote working.
It’s designed to be used on a ‘pick ’n’ mix’ basis. Just run the sessions you want. Or offer them all and let managers choose the right ones for them.
The overall objective of this unique offer is to help line managers:
- Appreciate where and how they need to change their approach when working virtually
- Refine their virtual communication skills
- Develop their virtual presence
- Pick up on vital signals that can easily be lost in a virtual world
- Be as effective working remotely as they are in the office
Our flexible webinars – ‘flexinars’ – adapt around the needs of your people and your organisation. Sessions can be run one after the other in longer virtual workshops, or spread out to form a programme which can be supported with curated resources and practical activities.
Design your own programme, selecting the topics and focus you need. Session 1 is meant as the foundation programme – after that, pick ’n’ mix as you prefer.
Each topic is usually covered in around 45 minutes – a bit less if you want to cover a few topics in a single session or a bit longer if you want to go into more depth.
Some of them have options for more skills practice, using actors if you wish.
All of them can be tailored to your precise requirements.
We can work with you to create a flexinar package that suits you, adding other topics as appropriate (eg, on change management, or anything from our wellbeing or working from home series) or blending in with your existing activities in this area.
These sessions can be delivered ‘as is’ or we can just take them as a starting point for a conversation with you. To have that conversation, give us a call today on 01582 463460.
