What does a high-performing hybrid team look like? While the indicators of a high-performing team are the same whether your agents are working from home or in the office, the way you manage team members to achieve those levels of performance has to be different.
Leading remote or virtual teams is similar to managing regular teams, but requires greater emphasis on building trust and confidence, communication, performance management, and effective use of technology.
Are you a Team Leader who wants to apply best practices in ‘leading from a distance’ and ensure your team feel inspired and motivated to deliver high performance?
Do you want to ensure you build strong working relationships, built on respect, trust and autonomy?
When you have attended this course, you will walk away feeling inspired to put the appropriate actions into place to support your remote team; making them feel trusted and valued and ultimately achieve a high performance.
By the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Explain effective ways to manage a remote team which includes a mix of experience and skill levels as well as individuals who may be losing motivation and job satisfaction.
- Identify ways to stay in REACH, with your team, to ensure you build Trust and avoid over-bearing check-ups or ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thinking
- Apply effective strategies when facilitating remote team meetings.
Benefits to your business
In today’s tight job market contact centres that offer flexible working or home working options to their agents have a definite edge when it comes to recruitment.
While offering hybrid working can help a contact centre snap up the best talent, it does bring a whole new series of management challenges. These are challenges you need to overcome to ensure the effectiveness of your teams and the wellbeing of your people.
Fortunately the management skills your leaders have always displayed in the office can still stand them in good stead. Once they understand how to apply them remotely your high-performance teams can be exceptional no matter where they work.
