Separated from our teammates, it’s harder to stay aligned, adapt to change, respond to opportunities, and maintain team cohesion. Some remote managers fall back to command-and-control or hands-off strategies – neither of which bring out the best in them or their teams.
Collaborating from a distance is now an essential skillset for leaders and individual contributors. It’s not a challenge for any one generation. These days, no one is entitled to say: Working remotely is just not my jam!
Everyone should be learning to stay better connected from a distance, more productive, calm in unfamiliar circumstances, and exceptionally kind to themselves and others.
Interaction Associates is here to help your team maintain its high performance despite the distance. We offer online training solutions that build members’ and leaders’ skillset and mindset necessary for remote collaboration. These virtual training solutions will help you develop practical techniques that address the unique business challenges that come with working out of the office.
Reduce the instances of unproductive meetings with this popular facilitation training program. We provide tools to guide process, resolve conflict, build agreements, and broker communication.
