    • Knowing how to manage remote workers and providing clear communications
    • Having clear strategies to motivate and engage remote workers to improve performance


    Approach & Course Outline


    Participants will benefit from a course and approach designed to be responsive to their needs.  We don’t like an ‘off-the-shelf’ approach, instead preferring to carry out a pre-course discovery activity to uncover what the group needs from the course.  Then we adapt our course to meet these needs – no two courses are ever exactly the same.

    Throughout the course, participants will benefit from a highly interactive approach, designed to be challenging but also to continually adapt and respond to the learners.

    Participants will enjoy the benefits of a highly experienced ILM practitioner as their tutor on this course (see below).  He provides detailed guidance, advice and feedback, supporting each individual participant towards successful achievement of this qualification.
