The Covid pandemic has seen a lot of changes to the working world as we had traditionally known it. The so called ‘norm’ consisted of full teams in the physical work setting but the subsequent government advice to work from home saw managers in the public service suddenly faced with the challenge of having to manage their team remotely. Staff members were all working from different locations and technology was the only means by which the team could stay connected.
This presented, and continues to present challenges for all involved, since managing remotely can be faced by particularly challenging circumstances including poor communication, loss of team morale and staff underperformance.
The importance of the human element in leading and managing a team is important, recognising the need to keep connected, care for your own wellbeing, care for your team members’ wellbeing, operate in more flexible ways while still delivering the service/end results that you are accountable for.
Now is the time to reflect and consider how you have been managing remotely over the last year or more, how you can learn from input and advice about managing remotely and share experiences and learn from other managers in the same situation.
The topics for this workshop have all been selected with this in mind and the trainer will facilitate conversations and introduce best practice, advice and tips on managing remotely, while allowing for discussion of those topics and sharing of experiences with your peers.
At the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of:
- Reflecting on and improving how they work from home and manage remotely
- The challenges that are faced by managers and supervisors including team morale, possible staff underperformance and poor communication
- Managing the delivery of team results while staff are working remotely
- Ensuring there is effective communications with staff, individually and as a team
- Goal Setting for your team members to ensure higher productivity levels
- Being aware of your own wellbeing as well as that of your team members
- Useful approaches both to managing high performance as well as techniques for managing underperformance.
