HOW TO LEAD PEOPLE YOU RARELY SEE

LEADING VIRTUALLY IS THE NEW NORM

Now more than ever, Leaders rarely see the people they lead. Leading virtually is the new norm. There are lots of challenges to being a great virtual manager. The good news is that leaders can overcome them!

 

HOW TO LEAD PEOPLE YOU RARELY SEE

Get the skills of a Situational Leader without the face to face contact many of your team members may be used to. Working in different time zones, remote locations, or even from home can create challenges. But just because the people you are leading virtually don’t see each other in person, it does not mean they can’t work together and get great results.

 

THE LEADING VUTRUALLY PROGRAN RECOGNIZES THERE ARE CHALLENEGES

Leading Virtually focuses on helping participants make the shift from

  • Working face to face to leading through phone calls and email
  • Monitoring activity to monitoring output
  • Open door policy to instant messaging and 24/7 email contact

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Increased virtual leadership effectiveness by

  • Sharing insights into the challenges of virtual leadership
  • Reinforcing the critical SLII® skills of diagnosing, flexibility, and partnering for performance, and their use in a virtual environment
  • Creating an action plan to incorporate new skills back on the job

 

LEADING VIRTUALLY PROGRAM FORMAT

In Leading Virtually, participants learn the three disciplines of effective virtual leaders.

Discipline I: Focus Attentiveness
Means knowing the goals, motivations, needs, and experiences of team members. Most important is to learn how to connect with the personalities and experiences of those they work with.

Discipline II: Foster Community
Effective virtual leaders work every day to connect team members to the larger organization. They do this by actively facilitating collaboration. They also create the team culture, as well as helping virtual workers unite to build community spirit.

Discipline III: Accelerate Development
It is too easy to lose track of the needs of people who work virtually. Virtual leaders need to stay focused on team members’ career as well as personal goals.
The program was developed to take advantage of the latest in technology. The training design alternates between presentation of research based learnings as well as interactive activities. Finally, it also uses at-home application of the material learned. The sessions are active and engaging. They contain a variety of chats and polls. There are also both large and small group discussions.

TRAINING WORKSHOPS BY BLANCHARD

SITUATIONAL LEADERSHIP

Situational Leaders give their people exactly what they need, when they need it. Even if they are leading virutlly. Overall, they offer guidance, caring, and autonomy. Most important, they provide just the right amount of direction as well as support to their team members. They know how to develop teams who deliver faster results.

COACHING ESSENTIALS

Most managers don’t understand how critical coaching is for the development, growth, and performance of their people. Ken Blanchard’s  leadership coaching program, Coaching Essentials®, will train your managers how to effectively coach their employees. Once they are coaching instead of managing, you will see many changes. Not only an increase in productivity, but they will also create an environment of trust and autonomy and deliver better bottom-line results.

FIRST-TIME MANAGER

Every year, new managers account for 2 million promotions.  The transition from great employee to successful manager is a difficult one. It requires a completely different skill set. Ken Blanchard’s First-time Manager training program sets your new managers up for success. It provides them with the training and skills needed to make a smooth transition.

ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE

Organizational change is a fact of business life. Disruptive changes, like reorganizations, mergers as well as downsizing or expansion can be hard on people. Tech implementations, and new initiatives can also be tough to get through. Ken Blanchard’s Leading People Through Organizational Change® program will teach your managers how to lead successful organizational change. Firstly, by understanding the different stages of concern, and secondly, adjusting their leadership style to improve productivity and morale.

SELF LEADERSHIP

Motivated and committed people make great things happen. However, disengaged employees do not make much of anything happen. Self- Leadership teaches individuals the skillset they need to become empowered, proactive self-leaders. Get better results for your organization by taking control of your own success.

LEGENDARY SERVICE

Every day, with every interaction, you have an opportunity to either build loyalty or lose a customer. Even though most companies recognize the importance of great service to their success, it is hard to come by. Ken Blanchard’s Legendary Service® training program will train your team to consistently deliver ideal service. Great Service will not only keep your external customers coming back but will make internal customers happy as well. Together with great service, happy employees give your team a competitive edge.
