Times have changed and many managers are having to adjust to managing their teams remotely. This course is designed to help you understand how to adjust to this new environment and manage your remote teams effectively.
You will begin the program by exploring strategies for establishing trust, engagement, and commitment: key cultural elements that can help teams meet their goals and can prevent remedial action. Then, you will examine methods for encouraging constructive conflict, building accountability, and fostering effective decision-making in a culture where employees are not together in a physical location.
