The course begins with definitions of a team and goes on to describe Peter Drucker’s five management activities, which do not change regardless of the size or location of the team being managed.
It then reviews three practical leadership styles, ideal for developing teams: transaction, transformational and situational.
What are the skills required in developing an effective team and what behaviours would be evident in an effective team leader, to help the team achieve its goals?
Managing remote teams can require different skills because of the varying locations, time zones, work patterns etc.
Additional effort on the part of the leader and the team members is required to achieve the team goals and effective communication is particularly important.
Various considerations when managing remote teams are reviewed, including four key factors and team members having complementary roles and responsibilities.
The course concludes with reviewing how to monitor performance, communication, use technology, work across different time zone and cultures and develop appropriate employment contracts.
