Managing at a Distance (online learning)

view the managing at a distance online learning programme

Online learning for new or experienced managers needing to manage remote teams and home workers.

Looking for public dates? Register your interest here and as soon as new dates are scheduled we’ll let you know.

This one-day programme contains 4 core modules. These can also be delivered in-house as a series of linked sessions on different days. We also offer shorter, bite-size courses – useful as a refresher or introduction to essential management tools. Contact us to discuss these options.

For over 25 years, =mc’s management programmes have been supporting new managers to develop the skills needed to get the most from their teams. In this changing and shifting world, many managers are now facing the prospect of needing to manage from a distance – where their teams are dispersed and working from home. This programme delivers the practical tools and techniques needed for managers to build confidence in managing teams from afar.

Over the course of 4 modules, we focus on the manager’s role and core responsibilities for achieving results from their teams. The modules are interactive and work as a series of essential building blocks. Participants take part in live discussions, peer coaching and group work. There is also the opportunity to work through case studies. Finally, the activities are structured to help with self-reflection on the models presented. This ensures the learning is fully embedded.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is designed specifically for individuals who have recently become responsible for managing colleagues or teams at a distance. It is the ideal development opportunity for new or experienced managers that want to adapt successfully to new ways of managing.

Outcomes for you and your organisation

After completing all 4 modules, led by a skilled =mc consultant, you will be able to

  • understand your role as a manager, and what you need to consider when managing at a distance
  • be confident in your management approach, flexing style effectively
  • know when to direct, when to advise, when to hold coaching conversations and when to step back
  • know how to delegate more effectively, and at the appropriate level of authority
  • use coaching skills to manage and empower your team from a distance

Learning Approaches

=mc uses Zoom as a virtual classroom, where the sessions will take place. The platform enables high levels of participation. Participants will have access to a learning portal where they can find downloadable handouts to support them both during and after the programme. The programme covers a wide range of topics with high-level trainer input. It combines:

  • theory input, practical advice and examples suited to the not-for-profit sector
  • opportunities to focus on real work challenges in small groups
  • opportunities to work in coaching pairs to share peer experience
  • self-directed learning activities to put key skills into practice

What you will need

To take part in =mc online learning you will need access to a computer with a working microphone, speakers (or headphones) and a webcam. You’ll need to be in a quiet space with a good internet connection.
