Leading and Managing Remote & Hybrid Teams

Tools and Skills for a High-Performance Distributed Workforce

Best Audience:

Any Leader that has found themselves in a new position of leading a fully remote or hybrid team

Michael has been working remotely for over 20 years, and one of the companies he founded, Radiant Technologies, won the #1 Best Place to Work back in 2013 with a mostly virtual team.

When the pandemic hit and he realized that a lot of companies were struggling with remote work, he wrote the now-bestselling book Leading in the Next Normal: A Guide to Building an Engaged, Resilient and Agile Virtual Workforce.

In this program attendees will learn how to:

  • Create a healthy remote workplace and know how to spot and prevent burnout
  • Run productive, engaging, and even FUN remote meetings
  • Keep motivation, focus, and spirits up…even through times of huge change
  • Easily and gracefully hold people accountable while you empower and coach them
  • Create a positive, supportive, performance focused culture that people buy into, even when they are virtual

Give your managers the toolkit they need to be successful in this new way of working with Michael’s proven system.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Everything has been designed for you to get the most value out of an engagement with myself. 

 

There are three main delivery types:

  • Keynote style Presentations 
  • Masterclasses (single-run courses)
  • Training Engagements (running weeks or months with a potential mix of presentations, trainings and coaching)
 

Everything can be done in person, virtual/online or a hybrid of both. 

Phase one

pre-engagement

This phase begins with a preliminary introductory conversation where we can connect via phone or video call. Initially, we will talk about the overall basics, covering everything from the date/time of your event to your budget/fees and the overall goal for your team/event/organisation.

If this is a match, we organise follow-up conversations to delve into the specifics of goal mapping for the event. We will look at your goals as a leader, your organisation’s present & desired culture, your tactical & strategic goals as an organisation, your aim for the event, and what’s going on in your industry. 

You will then get a tailored proposal with a concise strategy and plan for your event. 

Phase two

main content delivery

This phase includes all potential pre-event activities. Participation and engagement is a significant part of my presentation methodology, and this begins before the event has started.

One popular option is to customise my latest bestselling book, “Leading in the Next Normal”, as a gift for your attendees; for example, some CEOs like to write a forward or have the company logo on either the front or back cover. Interviews with executives can be another dynamic pre-engagement tool. We can employ many techniques like surveys, polls, teaser videos, blog posts, and social media to drive up anticipation for the event. These tools build excitement and anticipation and ensure participation is beginning before the event has even started.

The main hero of this phase is the event itself. You can expect this to be an interactive experience with techniques and takeaways for all attendees. I am not afraid to be vulnerable here – you’re attendees will get stories of my failures alongside the tales of my success. My style is to employ a personal approach with anecdotes and real-life experience to drive engagement and understanding with the core content effectively. I inject some humour and personality into the presentation – with normally even a few laughs here and there!

Alongside experience, I use psychology and neuroscience training to help your teams understand the mindset required for successful leadership. Attendees will come away from the event with the tools and techniques a leader needs. I will tailor the event to YOUR industry from our preliminary phases, making the content as relatable and accessible as possible for your teams. I can guarantee that attendees will leave knowing how to be better leaders and have the skillset to create high functioning teams.

Phase three

post event phase

The final stage is the follow up from the event. Alongside the traditional feedback forms or surveys, there is the option to engage in further activities to attain the highest value from the event.

For example, we can organise follow up conference calls or webinars with the potential for a live Q&A. I can also produce follow up videos/audios or written content if you prefer a more “on-demand” option. I also have many courses available online, and if the Mindset of the Leader is what you are interested in, I run a renowned “Leadership Mindset” course twice a year.
