Managing Remote Employees
60 Minute LIVE Teleconference on
Friday, September 11th at 2:00 PM Eastern Time
Most managers have at least a few employees located in another building, state or even country. And if that wasn't enough, there’s another 50 million Americans that work remotely from home.
While technology has made this possible, the reality is that most leaders struggle to manage remote employees and teams. Managing the virtual team is not like managing the people outside your door. And many of the typical leadership techniques just don’t work in remote settings.
In this teleconference called Managing Remote Employees, we’ll show you the latest techniques for leading far-flung teams and employees. You’ll learn specific communication routines (including what questions you should always ask), how to keep employees disciplined (even when you can’t see them), and how to build trust from miles away. We’ll also teach you which personality types work best in remote settings, and what leadership adjustments you need to make to be successful in virtual settings.
In this special 60 minute Teleconference, you call into a teleconference line to listen and ask questions and you get handouts/slides to download and keep. You can invite as many colleagues as you’d like and even interact directly with Mark Murphy, one of the country’s leading management experts.
This 60-minute session will show you:
Which personality types (e.g. introverted, extroverted, etc.) make the best remote employees (HINT: it’s not what you think)
How to assess remote employees’ job performance and measure their progress
Why you should NEVER ask “How’s it going?” to remote employees
3 attitude adjustments that leaders must make to successfully manage remote employees
The one question that you must ask at every virtual meeting to avoid being blindsided by people disagreeing with you behind your back
3 tools that build trust with remote employees (even when you never see each other)
How to transmit your corporate culture to employees that never get to see your corporate headquarters
Learn the pros-and-cons (and creative uses) of the latest technologies (social media, wikis, blogs, etc.)
3-step process for delegating large projects that gives you frequent progress checks (but without any micromanaging)
2 keys to keeping remote employees disciplined and productive
A specific weekly communication regimen that keeps remote employees connected and aligned
