Roffey Park Institute Programme: Managing Remote Teams
Starts 14 September 2021
Managing remote teams is not new. Many organisations have had people spread widely over sales territories, regional offices, international leadership teams and so on for decades. The Covid-19 pandemic created an immediate and unprecented shift to remote working that remains in place for many. It’s clear that in a post-Covid working life, we will all be working remotely on a permanent basis or shifting to a hybrid working arrangement.
Running a team remotely has challenges, but fundamentally the management role remains the same. It is being responsible for people’s performance and wellbeing when you’re not physically able to work with them and only connected virtually.
