Managing Remote Teams

Course Overview

Geographically dispersed teams are increasingly common in the modern workplace.

How do you overcome the challenges of supervising employees who work in different locations and time zones? What steps should you take to build trust, and develop open lines of communication? How should you establish routines? How do you help remote workers feel part of a team?

These are all important questions to be considered by anyone who manages remote workers and teams.

Managers must put in extra effort to cultivate a positive team dynamic and ensure remote workers feel connected to other colleagues and to the business overall. It requires a “proactive” approach by the manager.
