    * understand how effectively you lead currently and your situational leadership style
    * practice flexing your style of leading and communicating to appeal to varying audiences with differing expectations and preferences.



Course Content

    * Are you managing a team of people who do not directly report to you?
    * Are members of your team spread across the country / Europe / the World?
    * Are there cultural ‘tribes’ within your team?
    * Do you need to communicate and manage / lead in a consistent way that takes account of individual needs?
    * Do you want to improve your credibility and trustworthiness?

Virtual team-working is already commonplace across EMEA, North America and Asia Pacific and is rapidly becoming essential as organisations work in an increasingly collaborative way: both internally and externally with suppliers, customers and channel partners. Teams who do not feel the presence of their leader will often acquire greater allegiance to local peers and managers.  Those with strong virtual leadership will feel involved and engaged with the rest of the team and their shared goals, this will mean greater performance and less misunderstandings.

This course is facilitative in style, and you’ll get a chance to see things from the ‘remote perspective’ as well as the ‘centre perspective’ and come up with solid action plans to ensure your teams never feel remote.
