Webinar: Managing Hybrid Teams

Friday, 01 December 2023
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Nick Thomas & Associates

Nick Thomas & Associates will be hosting this session and will focus on the challenges faced managing hybrid teams and how best to tackle these.

Leading hybrid teams requires greater emphasis on building trust and confidence, communication, performance management, and effective use of technology. A Team Leader needs to understand what makes remote teams different and how to apply best practice in ‘leading from a distance’.

Remote teams need to feel trusted, inspired and motivated to deliver high performance without the feeling that their Team Leader is ‘checking up’ on all the time.

Team Leaders attending this course will walk away feeling inspired to put the appropriate actions into place to support their remote team, making them feel trusted and valued and supporting performance
