Building Trust and Permission with Remote Teams

4th June 2020 10:30AM (Europe/London)

Trust is a huge organisational issue and especially relevant in the current climate. Remote working and long-distance leadership are posing a range of challenges most of which are predicated on our confidence or trust in others. Many leaders are having to find new ways of working and for some that has meant adjusting their leadership style, letting go of some elements of control, and empowering their people remotely to ensure that roles and tasks are fulfilled.

This webinar will cover the latest insight across three pertinent topic areas:

1. Exploring how trust is built and lost and the impact it has on business outcomes.
- Tangible actions you can take right now to build and improve trust between the people you work with

2. Discussing approaches to empowerment and how it is intrinsically linked to accountability, motivation and engagement.
- Support tool to show you how

3. The role of leaders in role-modelling high trust behaviours because in uncertain times, people look to those in positions of influence for behaviour cues.
- Ways you can demonstrate your intent through meaningful actions
