Remote Leadership and Communication Certificate Program is Now Here

Leading remote teams comes with a new set of challenges for a new way of working. Are you ready?

One of the biggest changes – and challenges that many leaders and organizations are facing is leading teams remotely.

Leading remote employees is now a fact of life. Over 80% of teams and 90% of projects have at least one member not physically located with the rest of the group. And a recent study from showed that the number of employees who telecommute more than one day per week increased over 79% from 2005 to 2012.

These facts, while compelling, only matter if you are someone leading other remotely. If you are or there are others in your organization that do, you owe it to yourself, your team and other organization to read on.

Because while the principles of effective leadership and team management haven’t changed, maintaining peak performance and keeping employees engaged when separated by miles, time zones and culture is a tall task for any manager or organization.

New (Old) Challenges for Leaders

Let’s be honest – leadership of others is already hard enough when they are down the hall or on the shop floor. When you add in the challenges of them being remote, it gets harder – and more stressful.

  • How do we communicate successfully?
  • How can we make meetings, that are already painful in person work using technology? (and avoiding the conference call from he#%)
  • How do we build the relationships and trust with the team – and help them do that between each other?
  • How do we present ideas, change and more at a distance?
  • How do we coach and give feedback successfully?
  • How do we deal with the unknowns? After all, we can’t see what they are doing, how they are doing it and if they are ever working?

If have ever struggled with even one of these questions, you know what we mean.

Leadership is hard...doing it remotely is even harder.

But it is part of our job.

Harness the Power of Your Remote Team

From performance motivation...and more as a remote leader, you’ve got to be prepared to stay connected, handle meetings and schedules and provide the support your staff expects and needs.

This isn’t just a leadership problem (some organizations are selling remote leadership training that is really just their normal training with the word “remote” attached). And it isn’t just a technology and tools challenge (though knowing how to use the tools can facilitate your success). The Remote Leadership Certificate Series brings together experts in both of these areas to help you get the results you want.

Why a Certificate?

Leading remotely is the new skill required for you to lead in organizations.

  • How to prepare and deliver web presentations – using the job aids and planning tools you have
