Virtual Learning Programmes

Here are some of the more popular short programmes that we have been running online.

Leading Hybrid Teams

Hybrid 3

The world of work has changed beyond what we ever imagined. It will change again and keep changing. Not just because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The pandemic brought about the perfect storm, that was already brewing and accelerated the pace of change like we never could have expected. Nobody knows exactly what the future of work will look like, but we all recognise that organisations and teams are unlikely to go back to the working patterns of the past.

So, what does this mean for leading teams. Team leaders who have in the past managed on-site teams and may have managed remote teams more recently are already, or will soon, find themselves leading teams in a hybrid environment. Hybrids will take different forms in different organisation but likely most leaders will need to navigate some form of hybrid.

We were all catapulted into large scale remote working with no time to pre plan in March 2020. This time around we need to take time to plan, challenge our mindsets, upskill and reassess our approach to team leadership in a hybrid environment. Hybrid is a very different challenge and opportunity and is more difficult to ‘get right’ than all remote or all on site. Team dynamics will change as will team member expectations in terms of what they are looking for from their leaders and organisations.

Duration: 2x half days

Surviving and Thriving in a Hybrid Team

Hybrid teams
Read more

As ways of working, working environments and team set ups continue to develop, it is critical that as we move into the ‘new normal’ we give employees and opportunity to explore what this will mean for them and the necessary skills to allow then to thrive in the hybrid teams. We don’t know what the future of work will look like, but we do know that it will continue to change at a pace we have only recently become familiar with. Our teams need the situation and opportunity to process what has and is changing and how they deal with that transition and contribute their best to their team and organisation.

Teams who have historically worked in one location are now likely to find themselves in dispersed teams who spend less, if any, time in the same physical location. We all need to reassess our approach to teamwork, collaboration, communication, productivity and creativity. Self-motivation and taking accountability are even more important in hybrid settings. We all need to reassess how we interact with each other, including with our managers.

This workshop will support team members to address the key challenges they are likely to face in this new environment and learnt strategies and skills for transitioning to the ‘new normal.’

Duration: 3hr session

Maximum number of participants: 12

Leading Remote Teams

You will explore how to build and maintain a sense of team as we socially distance and work from home.

Working from Home Support Workshop

Read more

This workshop is similar to the Leading Remote Teams, but focused on individual contributors rather than managers. Typically it is an hour-long and gives an opportunity for people to discuss and share and also to get some tips and insights. A key challenge for people is managing their time – especially when partners and sometimes children are also at home, so we can also extend this workshop to a 3 hour session and include some pre-work to convert it to Working from Home and Managing Your Time Effectively.

Offered as a 1 hour to 3 hours workshop

Maximum number of participants: 12

Impactful Feedback

This workshop will be approached in terms of giving feedback, however the principles and techniques are the same whether on line or in person. Managers may be more likely to shy away from / avoid giving feedback on line. This workshop can address this but also develop skills in giving feedback no matter what the situation.

Recommended duration: 90 minutes to 2 hours

Maximum number of participants: 12

Critical Conversations at a Distance

remote meeting 2
Read more

Working in a virtual environment sometimes results in an over use of emails to communicate. Where such communications involve tough or seemingly unpalatable messages, involving clients, colleagues, stakeholders or team, these can quickly lead to problems, especially with the absence of body language and tone. Taking our impactful critical conversations, this workshop will focus on how to prepare and handle critical conversations online, as well as be better equipped to deal with matters if you happen to be on the receiving end of someone else’s critical conversation.

Recommended duration: 2.5 hours

Maximum number of participants: 12

Presentation Skills in a Virtual Environment

Delegating and Giving Impactful Feedback

zoom meeting
Read more

The first part of this workshop focuses on the principles of delegation and accountability. Managers often struggle with this and even more so on line. As a result of this workshop you will have challenged your own mindset about getting work done through others and will have developed a very specific action plan on how to address this and share the load appropriately, ensuring accountability lies where it should.

In the second part of this workshop we will focus on giving feedback on line, however the principles and techniques are the same whether on line or in person. You may be more likely to shy away from / avoid giving feedback on line and ‘postponing’ it until we are back to our ‘new normal’, however feedback is more like champagne then red wine – it is best served fresh and sparkling and does not benefit from time to mature! The mindset and skills you develop in this workshop will be useful in giving feedback no matter what the situation and will work equally well in person and on line.

Recommended duration: 3 hours

Maximum 12 participants

Finance for non Financial Managers

Read more

Financial accounts are an accurate indication of the business position. But all too often, managers are not familiar with how to read these accounts, once presented to them. A thorough understanding of, and the ability to interpret accounts as business indicators, will allow you to have much greater control over your business and its operations. Being able to account for and interpret your own financial figures is vital, so that you plan effectively and learn from past experiences.

At the end of this programme, participants will understand how they can use their accounts to better run their business/department and understand the fundamental principles behind the compilation of a company’s accounts. They will be able to analyse and interpret the data in a meaningful way, using defined financial ratios and key performance indicators while understanding the techniques used in forecasting and budgeting and the principles of investment appraisal.

Recommended duration: 3 x 3hr sessions

Maximum number of participants: 12

Testimonials

What I really noticed was that I was so engaged in the workshop that I honestly couldn’t believe the 1.5 hours was over when it was completed. So to me that says a lot! You were able to keep me engaged (late at night my time when I am not my best) and talked about topics super relevant to the situation I am going through and the situation my staff are dealing with.  

I really liked the use of technology and the break out rooms were great! 

From my perspective a job very well done and I think everyone who attends these workshops should end up with valuable knowledge and resources.

Leading Remote Teams Workshop

Academic Institution

I found it very engaging and beneficial. The course facilitators were lovely and engaged well with the course attendees. Despite meeting in a virtual capacity, the experience felt very normal. The use of technology was very impressive too. I liked the breakout rooms and the Padlet tool. Plenty of  conversation, and interesting to hear from other people outside your own department and the challenges they are facing working from home. The second part of the course focused on practical tips that you can apply to your own work regime.
