Remote Management for 2021 – Post COVID transitions

World of Work Project

In this one hour, online seminar we explore some key challenges that teams which went remote as a result of covid lockdowns are now starting to face after a year out of the office and as they start to consider transitions back to blended or office based working. We offer practical and evidenced-based approaches to successfully navigating these challenges as a manager and especially with the context of 2021 in mind.

We will share recent findings about changing issues in remote management since 2020, and explore how people’s relationship with their work, including the remote nature of it, continues to shift and what this means for managers and their practices. We also look at how people’s own identities as employees are shifting and how managers can adapt whilst still maintaining effective teams.

All World of Work Project sessions include theory, evidence, and ideas for the practical application so that managers can:

Lead open and productive conversations to better understand their team members’ changing contexts and relationships with work and their expectations of organisations and managers

More confidently manage their central role between organisations and team members with mutually acceptable outcomes

Plan for successful team management and develop their own approach to managing individual team members according to individual needs, but with fairness across the team in mind

Feel more confident about managing difficult or complex conversations remotely
