Management issues seem magnified when your employees work from remote locations

Whether your employees work from home, at a remote office, in the field, or travel so frequently they must check in from the road, the problems you face as a manager are increased tenfold when you can't be there for your employees in person. Being a manager is hard enough when you are in frequent personal contact ... and when you aren't, even the smallest problems can quickly spiral out of control.

Not being able to see employees face-to-face can really throw a wrench into your management style. Defusing conflicts, dealing with crises, delivering feedback (both positive and negative), monitoring work flow, offering support — your responsibilities as a manager get that much tougher when you can't do it in person. Even something so simple as organizing an impromptu team meeting or calling for a group brainstorming session can become that much more complicated when team members work off-site.

 

Practical, real-world solutions address the unique problems off-site managers face every day ...

From legal compliance issues to the subtleties of motivating remote workers, you'll come away from this training session fully equipped to manage a virtual office staffed with off-site workers. Whether you supervise a few home-based workers, or are responsible for managing several large remote office locations, this course will provide you with the critical information and proven skills necessary to take on your toughest off-site managerial challenges.


What you learn here will help you ...

  • Bolster morale, spark enthusiasm, and increase motivation ... even if your workers are across town, across the country, or on the other side of the world

  • Monitor performance and productivity more effectively without coming across as a meddling manager

  • Determine when a face-to-face visit is necessary, and decide whether that visit should be a "surprise"

  • Identify subtle warnings that could indicate trouble is brewing in off-site locations

  • Conduct performance appraisals, hire, and even fire workers when you can't be there in person to soften the blow


Who should attend?

This training was designed specifically to address the needs of those responsible for long distance, remote, or home-based employees. It is perfect for managers, supervisors, team leaders, department leaders, branch managers, administrators, regional managers, CEOs, CFOs, business owners, and others in positions of management or leadership.
