This programme is designed to help support managers and leaders in their challenging situation of working with remote teams and direct reports who are geographically separated, as well as those that work with a functional reporting line, matrixed with a therapy, project or geographical responsibility.

Typically, managers of remote teams rely on email and phone calls to communicate with their colleagues.

This programme focuses on how to make best use of these methods of communications and how to maximise face-to-face meetings in order to create a high performing team. One with a sense of identity and common purpose, where individuals can be supported, challenged and coached as appropriate.

In addition to communication it addresses the importance of role clarity and responsibility as well as the practicality of appraisals and objective setting in a matrixed world.
