Insights: Leading in a virtual environment

2hr virtual workshop

Learn how to be a more effective virtual leader and enhance performance and engagement for each individual.

Workshop Overview

Leaders have a tough job; they need to motivate, develop[, engage and guide the people they lead through today’s challenging times.  That job is even harder when you are leading virtually and don’t have the benefit of face to face time for feedback and developmental conversations.

Reading climate and mood is also hard in a virtual team and this makes it tougher to shape culture and engagement.  This programmes helps leaders to explore their leadership strengths and challenges when leading in a virtual environment so they can be more effective in their remote roles.

How do we create effective virtual training sessions?

The Leading in a Virtual Environment session is a two-hour virtual event using Zoom or similar technology.  The session is designed so that the delegates can enjoy interactive exercises and group discussion, while being guided through engaging learning content by an expert facilitator.

The session includes a per-learning module that delegates attend before the main session to understand the main concerts we will be exploring.

Job aids and activity sheets support the planning and implementation backon the job afterwards.

Angela is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. She uses a great mixture of science, theory, practical exercises and electronic applications to keep the audience engaged throughout any of her courses. She has a great skill at listening to an individual’s input, but still keeping to topic and to time. One of Angela’s greatest skills is building training material specific to a team’s needs, but aligning to wider business strategies and using expert views to deliver material that is well thought through and validated.

Angela has delivered many development programmes to our managers at Allied Bakeries and the feedback is always excellent. Her key strength is in her ability to relate, both to a diverse group of management and to tailor learning to the workplace making it relevant and insightful. She builds confidence in front line managers and creates a safe environment for people to try out new skills. The benefits can be seen in our manager’s capability improvement across the areas she has worked with us on which include Managing Performance, Coaching and Presentation Skills.
