The role of the manager has changed dramatically across the NHS, with over 55% of workers now working from home and moving away from the notion of all members of a team seated together in an office to creating “virtual teams” that are scattered across multiple locations and homes.

This rapid change in teamworking dynamics is presenting managers with new challenges; This rapid change in teamworking dynamics is presenting managers with new challenges;

“How do I ensure everyone understands and has clarity of our shared purpose?”
“How do we get everyone to feel connected and work collaboratively as part of a team?”
“How will I effectively communicate with everyone and keep individuals motivated and engaged?”
These challenges are switching the emphasis from processes to focusing on how managers combine high engagement with high standards of performance to achieve productivity. Managers need to adapt quickly to provide the conditions for virtual teams to feel safe to perform at their natural best.

New management approach

This new management workshop utilises the benefits offered from recent neuroscience research into individual’s psychological safety needs (highlighted by Google’s Project Aristotle) and Harvard Business School’s extensive examination of 21st century leadership and teamworking trends to create an innovative and practical approach for managing virtual teams effectively and efficiently.

Aim and objectives

The aim of the on line workshop is to provide managers working across health care and the public sector with the confidence and capabilities to create a culture and conditions where individuals working virtually feel safe and engaged so that they can perform at their natural best. The objectives include:

Explore and practice a pragmatic management model of how to manage a high performing virtual team
Understand and reflect upon which of the core principles of high performing virtual team work best for your specific situation and challenges

The Managing High Performing Virtual Teams workshop is designed for those who aspire to adapt to the new ways of teamworking and improve their leadership role.
