Remote management: why training is important
A specific context
Over the years, new ways of working have appeared in companies. While the health crisis has made teleworking widely popular, many organizations have chosen to keep this working method. Indeed, more and more organizations are now integrating partial or occasional telework into their daily lives in order to benefit from all their advantages. This major development calls on managers to adapt their toolboxes in terms of team and project management. Time management, communication and production tools, and collaboration tools are all elements that are best reviewed.
Remote management allows managers to develop their practices by applying dedicated working methods. Training in this type of management therefore allows the manager to gain in efficiency and performance in order to boost the results of the organization while promoting excellent exchanges within his team.
Tools to master
Management tools are traditionally designed to organize and boost the activities of employees present on company premises. They are therefore generally unsuitable for remote work and need to be redesigned. Good remote management tools allow for simplified communication and collaboration. We are thinking in particular of tools facilitating meetings, webinars, daily tasks, work time management, project management and communication. Each task requires different tools depending on the requirements and needs of the business.
