January 2015

We are very pleased to announce the launch of a new e-learning course-  Remote Leadership Toolkit  to address the unique challenges experienced by remote leaders of virtual teams.

While the principles of effective leadership and team management haven’t changed, maintaining peak performance and keeping employees engaged when separated by miles, time zones and culture is a tall task for any manager or organization.

Let’s be honest—leadership of others is already hard enough when they are down the hall or on the shop floor. When you add in the challenges of them being remote, it gets harder—and more stressful.

  • How do we communicate successfully?
  • How can we make meetings (that are already painful in person), work using technology?
  • How do we build the relationships and trust with the team—and help them do that between each other?
  • How do we present ideas, change and more at a distance?
  • How do we coach and give feedback successfully?
  • How do we deal with the unknowns? After all, we can’t see what they are doing, how they are doing it and if they are ever working?

If you have ever struggled with even one of these questions, you know what we mean. Leadership is hard...doing it remotely is even harder.

Through a partnership with the Remote Leadership team this e learning course has been developed to build the skills needed to successfully lead and manage a virtual team. With 18 courses, covering six topic areas, remote leaders now have the tools they need to be successful leaders, no matter where their employees work in the world. 

We welcome your request for an evaluation of this new course offering that can be launched from your LMS or through our portal. Please contact us so that we can get you setup for an evaluation today!

September 2014

New for September we have a new program-  Leadership Feedback  demonstrates best ways to successfully give our leaders, managers or supervisors feedback.  Available in all formats:  DVD- Streamed Video or e-learning course.  Available on all devices!

Leadership Feedback  is based on extensive interviews with actual employees who gave candid feedback about the leaders they worked for. These interviews were anonymous, allowing the employees to honestly discuss which leadership behaviors were motivating – or demotivating.   Six key issues of leader/employee interaction emerged from this research and are illustrated in the video. For each issue, the video shows two scenarios – one with an ineffective leader, the other with an effective one. 

6 Key Issues of Leader/Employee Interaction

  1. Mistakes
  2. Appreciation
  3. Transparency
  4. Competence
  5. Autonomy
