Remote Leadership Programme description

Pedagogical Objectives

Training Content

The learning journey is designed along three dimensions and phases.

Phase 1: The Self in Context

The programme begins by exploring the participants context of their corporate team, and the individual challenges and concerns. Further exploration of their mental models and looking at the two sides of empathy through the manager and the employee.

  • understand Mental Models
  • energize people across distances
  • use the power of Emotional Intelligence in distributed Teams

Phase 2: Teams in Motion

The second phase strategizes and maps out the virtual managerial landscape – by progressing towards the do’s and don’ts of virtual teaming. The bonus part of this section is the instalment of the newly emerging networking landscape – extending the take-away beyond the boundaries of the team, direct reports and peers.

  • Leverage cognitive diversity of remote teams
  • Create feedback mechanisms, psychological safety & trust in virtual contexts

Phase 3: Practice & Progress

The third phase is the implementation and adaption of newly developed routines, that allow participants to create a sustainable set of behaviours matching their organisation’s needs and desires. This phase also includes a series of small group coaching sessions to ensure the practical aspects of managing is achieved.

  • Master stakeholder alignment and management
  • Learn the importance of networks and effective Collaboration in the New World

Each section is followed by a series of conversations supported by either the participant’s senior leadership team – serving as sounding board and framing mechanism for future steps or by the programme team or programme director, serving as reflective pitstops on the way to progress.

The end of the journey is dedicated to the sharing, acknowledgment of the re-framing and initialization of the new management behaviour. Similarly, a virtual fair of participants and their senior leadership team will present the results, share their perspectives, and provide feedback.
