Leading high-performing remote teams

Managing remote and/or mobile teams leads to a paradoxical situation calling for both autonomy and control. How can managers create the right conditions for team engagement, motivation and initiative? How can they simultaneously manage activities and work on individual and team performance? What approach should they take, which communication channels should they use, and what management rituals should they implement? By providing a thorough understanding of motivation levers and communication mechanisms, this course will give you the experience and tools to become an effective manager-as-coach, as well as improve your confidence and your impact on individual and team performance.
