SmartTalkHR On-Demand Webinar

Remote work is here to stay. The COVID-19 pandemic has made that much clear.

Now that the health crisis has accelerated this trend and made it the 'new normal,' leaders are finding themselves in the steep curve of learning how to adapt themselves and their skills to the challenges and complexities of managing entire workforces virtually.

Coaching your team in a virtual environment requires your organization to adopt a communicative, collaborative, employee-engaged culture built on trust and accountability. And if you need to correct course, it’s not too late. You can promote communication, collaboration, connection and accountability with yourself and your team members so that you’re working in ways that resonate with the values your team brings to their work and with what they need during this unprecedented time.

Join Randstad RiseSmart’s Katie B. Smith, executive coach, and Jeanne Schad, talent solutions and strategy practice lead, to find out how to coach your team toward greater empowerment.

You'll learn:

  • Ideas, tips and tools to coach your team in the new virtual environment
  • Live coaching example and coaching questions to cover with your team members to support them in being productive and effective in working remotely
  • Strengthening leadership competencies required to focus and engage virtual teams
