Managing Remotely

April 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT



Have you suddenly found yourself managing teams of staff members working remotely, or in a blended environment with some on-site and others remote? Are some staff carrying too much of the load while others are not working hard enough? In this 90 minute workshop we will cover key methods for supervising remote or blended teams. We will cover a method commonly used by major tech corporations such as Google as well as national nonprofit organizations: Objectives and Key Results. We will also cover how to shift performance management systems to complement the OKR approach to supervision and how to engage and build strong teams in a remote environment.

In this workshop, participants will:
  • Participants will learn how to move away from managing the quantity of work towards managing the quality of work
  • Participants will learn how to link Objectives and Key Results to performance management systems
  • Participants will learn to build team camaraderie using a variety of methods suitable for digital engagement
