As a line manager you will be considering how you can best manage and lead your team members during this time, as well as deliver what is needed for your organisation.

You’ll be all too aware of the unique pressures that COVID-19 is placing on your team. From extra stressors at home, illness, increased workloads, rapidly changing environment, staff shortages due to sickness, furlough leave and loss, managing change and home working – to name but a few of the factors that will be impacting staff.

In addition, you will all be in separate locations and cannot rely upon the usual ways of communicating, making decisions, and working together. These unprecedented times require a new approach to leadership and management.

This course is designed for experienced and new line managers who are seeking to adapt to the current situation and enhance their skills even further. The course will give you tools and techniques for supporting your team remotely and delivering results for your organisation. It will be practical and interactive.

Here are some of the key questions this course will help you find answers to:

- What is my preferred leadership style?

- What I am like when I’m at my best (and worst)? What is the shadow I cast?

- How authentic is my leadership style? How responsive am I to different team members’ needs?

- What beliefs may be holding me back?

- What are my strengths, and how do these fit with my team’s strengths?

- What climate do I want to create?

- How can I bring out the best in team members?

- How can I have effective conversations that ensure delivery?

- I can help team members remain productive and motivated?

- How do I do all of the above when I’m unable to bring my team together in a room.


What's covered in this course:

· How to strengthen team trust and cohesiveness, even when apart

· Case studies from non-profit sector leaders on managing staff remotely

· How to have difficult conversations and manage under performance

· How to boost your team’s resilience and wellbeing to support them through these difficult times

· How to keep productivity high and deliver what is needed

· How to have difficult conversations and manage under performance

· Common remote management mistakes and how to avoid them

· The key elements of a high performing team and how to embed these when working remotely

· Discover your preferred style of leadership and how you can be responsive to each team member’s needs
