Virtual Management Training Programme

Certainly, virtual people and performance management is challenging enough, even without the backdrop of a pandemic. This four-module virtual training programme aims to provide line managers and team leaders with an essential set of tools to enable them to manage the performance and wellbeing of a virtual team.

Providing the skills to effectively manage a remote team

We know that remote working due to COVID-19 has presented a whole new set of concerns and challenges to overcome. Some individuals and organisations have thrived, while others struggled. Above all, the difference all came down to one thing – the leadership approach of their people and performance managers. This is an opportunity for organisations to sink or swim and it lies in the hands of the line manager who may have little to no training. Therefore, in this course, we provide the training and skills they need to help drive business to success. Each delegate also receives a personalised 360 report, a copy of our free e-Book on Virtual People and Performance Management, and membership of the Management Superhero WhatsApp community. Cohorts are kept small to maximise interaction and collaboration.

The price is £599 £299 for the full programme, and in certain circumstances we may be able to allow one-off attendance on individual modules, depending on group sizes. These single modules are priced at £199 £99 per module or please contact us if you are interested in an in-house programme – prices start at £3,000 for up to 16 participants.

In-company Bespoke Offering

As an open programme, this is a set course where the dates are fixed (see above). The limit on attendees is to ensure the course is highly interactive and practical. Alternatively, if you require a more bespoke offering for a range of individuals within your organisation, we recommend the in-company offering, where we can tailor the course to your business requirements as well as coordinating appropriate timeframes for you. A minimum of 6 people is required for an in-company course, with a maximum of 16 attendees per session.
