A practical workshop about what remote leadership is and how to become a remote leader
Take your current leadership skills up a level to become an effective remote leader by applying what you already know when leading virtual or hybrid teams.
Many leaders know what works when leading their teams. Yet they rely heavily on being 'in person', and on the charisma and spur-of-the-moment approach which they've used successfully for many years. However, with remote leadership things become harder. The spontaneity is missing when leading remotely, and the impact of personality and pep-talks across a desk is reduced.
However, remote leadership doesn't mean learning a whole new set of leadership skills: it just means making some tweaks, and applying those skills in different ways.
In this practical yet reflective module, participants will learn the key elements of their own leadership style, and how to adapt these for the virtual world. This will enable them to become remote leaders who are as effective as they are when they operate in-person.

Leaders and managers who have experience of leading a face-to-face team, and now need to adapt these skills to the virtual leadership world by building on their current expertise.
Knowledge Bites are acknowledged experts in the virtual space. Director, Neil Shorney, has been leading teams remotely since 2004, when he ran a hybrid team for an international project management consultancy. His success in leading this team (without the benefit of video calls) led to him gradually growing his empire to include employees on 5 continents.
Neil feels strongly that virtual is a benefit rather than a hindrance to teams and business success. Anyone can thrive in the virtual space, if given the right tools and techniques to do so.
