leading virtual teams

Leading people who work from home 

How to keep your team productive, motivated and engaged. 

Let's focus on the special challenges of leading people who work from home, during the pandemic. 

What makes Skillset's approach different?

  • Real training, not passive listening. It'll be a webinar, not the usual face-to-face workshop, but there'll still be discussion and activities.
  • Vital information - our pick of what really makes a difference
  • Evidence-based – not just pop psychology
  • Simple, practical, proven strategies
  • Includes the experience of a company that has used the same methods for many years. (It's been normal for our team to work from home regularly. We are all highly-engaged and our staff turnover is extraordinarily low.)
  • We’ll make it fun.

What can we cover in your training?

(It’s your workshop, so we’ll design it to meet your needs.)

A few suggestions:

  • what’s different about leading virtual teams?
  • understanding the team member's perspective. What do they need from us? 
  • deciding who is and isn't suitable for working from home (practical and personalty issues)
  • the three ‘universal motivators’. They cost nothing and work in all cultures. (Every leader should know them.)
  • six leadership styles and when you need to use them
  • how to develop a healthy growth mindset to encourage motivation, resilience and a postive attitude to challenges
  • vital questions to ask when you 'check in' with each member of the team
  • how to help your team set goals and achieve them
  • how to keep the energy going when people are feeling isolated or stressed.
