Managing Virtual Teams
Programme length: 1 or 2 Days
Understanding management and leadership skills is important for anyone who wants to be a successful manager of people. Nowhere is this more important than when the team is geographically dispersed or operates in a virtual environment. It throws up very different day to day challenges from a management perspective.
This practical training programme is designed to build on existing management skills and experience but focus on providing solutions for the specific challenges of managing remote teams, or individuals in a virtual organisational structure.
The programme is facilitated as an interactive workshop designed to explore appropriate subjects relevant to your organisation and management team. It is enhanced and supported by the facilitator using underpinning management theories and models when necessary.
Coaching Skills for Managers

It is a practical and fast-moving programme that promotes coaching as the foundation to build a learning culture in your organisation.
The learning is covered in one jam-packed day through a series of interactive experiential learning activities. There is an optional half-day session which focuses on practice and receiving one-to-one feedback. The aim is to ensure that everyone leaves the programme with ability to confidently carry out coaching sessions.

In many businesses, managers and employees can be heard complaining about existing time consuming and often irrelevant Performance Management (PM) processes.
RightTrack is at the forefront of a wave of change on this subject, recognising cultural and societal factors are compelling organisations to rethink performance management. During the training programme, we work with business managers to reconcile these new methods and thinking with existing processes to boost the effectiveness of performance management.
This two-day programme looks at how to remove bureaucracy from PM systems to fit within modern organisational cultures, how to align personal and organisational objectives but keep them rapidly flexible. Performance interview techniques are covered and the place of coaching and mentoring in meeting the needs of today’s workforce. It can be delivered as a standalone programme or as part of a larger modular management development initiative.
