How to lead remote teamsTools To Help Lead Teams Remotely

How well do think you know your team? With remote working becoming the norm how well informed, from a distance, do you think you now are about their motivation and mental wellbeing? We are now hearing more frequently from clients saying how surprised they are about how staff have resigned, are under performing or off sick since working from home. Without that day to day direct personal interaction it’s easy for leaders and managers to miss those signs, whether verbal or through body language, which indicate a potential problem.

It’s inevitable,  that with more people having to lead remotely, that leaders and managers will become more task focused rather than people focused. But what negative impact can this have on team members? How much did we underestimate those conversations around the coffee machine!

We can help you understand how well your teams are adapting, establish how effective they are and what they are feeling.

Act now to prevent staff resignations, improve performance and reduce absenteeism!

What Can Our Remote Working Behavioural Assessments Deliver?

Using purpose designed remote working behavioural assessments we can help develop your teams but more importantly help you to understand their current levels of motivation, their ability to work remotely now and what possible support they may need such as mental health awareness.

The assessment will deliver the following information for each team member and overall team:-

  • An individual personal style will unveil their core values, abilities, strengths and limitations, future personal development, how they relate to others, and planning for their career.
  • A report on how they develop relationships
  • A report on how they are motivated
  • A report on their ability to work remotely.
  • A team report on how effective the team are working together and how they can develop

“Tutors were excellent. Good mix of objective teaching mixed in with personal experience, and managed to keep things light and fun, while also constantly moving the learning forward.” Delegate, National Retailer, 2020

The remote working report is key to the future of building highly successful teams who are not always located together. This assessment looks at the following areas:-

  • Adaptability
  • Collaboration
  • Expertise
  • Interaction
  • Organisation
  • Perseverance
  • Self-Sufficiency
  • Time Management
