Best Practices for Distributed Teams

VT101:  Best Practices for Distributed Teams
Are you and your team navigating the shift to working from home or the shift back to the office?  Whether you're brand new to working from home or learning to balance working from home under new conditions, we have tips for helping you work from home more effectively.  In this interactive, 90-minute live, virtual webinar, you will learn the best practices for:

  • Taking care of yourself while working from home
  • Designing your space for success
  • Maximizing your efficiency and managing your energy using block time
  • Managing your technology instead of being tortured by it
  • Staying connected
  • Creating a healthy work life balance
  • Working from home with spouses, kids, pets, roommates, etc.
  • Navigating unplanned distractions

"My team recently moved from working in a collaborative in-person environment to full-time remote. Although most of them have experience working remotely occasionally, this was a huge shift in how we work, and in particular, how we work together. We needed some tips and training on how to be productive without being in the same space. CultureSync’s Best Practices for Working Remotely module helped guide the team with ideas on how we could set ourselves up for success. The team was highly engaged during the session, and shared their thoughts and plans on moving through our new norm. I highly recommend this training for any remote teams, regardless if it is new or something that has been in place for years. Our CultureSync partners did an amazing job!"

VT403:  Leading Distributed Teams
Are you learning to lead a distributed team?  While that often brings some immediate benefits to an employee’s experience, there is a growing double-bind for managers and executives who now need to lead distributed teams. This is especially concerning for early-career managers promoted from individual contributor, and for executives who are accustomed to managing in-person, on-site teams. There are a set of pressures coming from the newly remote employees and new pressures coming from an organization that still needs to produce results with a now distributed workforce. Combine those pressures with leaders who typically built their skillsets with an entirely on-site team, and you have a recipe for frustration and inefficiency at a time when there is more than enough stress in our environments. This course is designed to work at multiple levels to set up a successful distributed work situation for all parties involved – executives, managers, employees, colleagues, teams, families, and roommates.

Whether your team is brand new to working from home or learning to balance working from home under new conditions, we have tips for helping you lead your team to success as they work from home during this uncertain time.  In this interactive, 90-minute live, virtual webinar, you will learn:

  • What to expect as your team adopts a new working environment
  • Where to invest your energy at this time
  • The phases a team will go through when adopting any change
  • How to lead your team through those phases more effectively
  • Best practices for communicating with a remote team
  • To manage for objectives, not activity, or time
  • How to create more accountability without being experienced as a micromanager
  • How to set a compelling new vision for your virtual team

Was brilliant to get beyond the book into operationalizing the thinking.  It was an enlightening and enjoyable couple of days.

The impact of Tribal Leadership workshops is nothing short of amazing. After one exposure to the ideas, people use the words on a daily basis. After several exposures, people lead and manage in different ways, and get better results.

I think I learnt more about the team and myself in the two days with CultureSync than over the last 12-24 months. I feel a supportive difference amongst the team and a level of honesty I don’t think we’ve had before.
