Managing remote teams

A practical, interactive webinar exploring how to manage teams which operate remotely or a mix of on and off campus.

Course overview

2020/21 Semester 1 courses: These webinars will run in October, November, December and January.

Recent changes have required us all to adapt at fast pace to a more remote, flexible working model. This webinar provides managers with the background and practical tools needed to operate effectively in this environment. During the session you will explore:

  • how to create belonging, psychological safety and recognition
  • goal setting and managing by outcomes
  • how to maintain influence without presence and build trust

Course structure

This course has 1 x 90 minute session. There is required pre-work in advance and work with colleagues after the sessions. You must be able to commit to all elements.

Who should attend

Anyone with responsibility for managing remote teams and/or individuals

Presenters: Hazel Carter-Showell, Edward Parkes, Natalie Whitaker; Carter Corson Business Psychologists
