About the workshop
These are uncertain times, and businesses across the globe are having to adapt rapidly to the new challenges presented by the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Working from home will become the norm, and in many instances the necessity for the well-being of workers. With mandated self-isolation for incoming travellers and those testing positive to COVID-19, the threat to business productivity is real. You must adapt, and you must do so at lightning speed.
Fittingly delivered online over two mornings, this workshop will equip you with the skills you need to maintain 'business as usual' as much as possible, and inoculate your company against the uncertainties of the current health crisis.
Anna Saunders has extensive experience leading remote and geographically dispersed teams, and vital skills and strategies to share to help you, your team, and your organisation survive the disruption of the foreseeable future.
Building inclusive cultures
One of the biggest challenges of remote working arrangements is maintaining a great working relationship between team members. The experience of collaborating in person is difficult to replicate over online meetings and phone calls. In the current climate, you need to overcome that.
- Foster healthy working relationships, even across geographical divides
- Create psychologically safe working environments
- Adapt your leadership style to the needs of your team’s established cultures
Communication is the bedrock of great leadership at the best of times. Now more than ever, skilful communication of critical information is paramount to the success of your team and organisation as a whole. You must deftly assess the information needs of your internal stakeholders, and deploy information via strategically considered mediums and messengers. Learn the art and science of communication.
- Foster trust through open and transparent communication
- Right-fit your communication strategy to audience and purpose
- Create influencers and change agents
Strategies for productivity
Telecommuting presents challenges for productivity, the home environment abundant with unpredictable distractions from work. Experienced telecommuters and remote leaders have refined strategies to overcome these challenges, but with the incredible spike in home-working in recent weeks and likely to continue to rise, you'll need to implement strategies to ensure productivity quickly.
- Design team routines to reduce procrastination
- Implement simple and effective reporting protocols to improve accountability
- Reduce distractions and improve efficient project delivery
Management frameworks for remote leadership
In these uncertain times, it is imperative that leaders have robust governance and risk management protocols in place. The stability these foundations afford you will allow you to focus your attention on the needs of your teams, who will look to you for leadership and support to come through with resilience.
- Design and create appropriate governance protocols
- Enable appropriate risk management and mitigation
- Support the development of resilient leaders
