CARY, N.C., March 25, 2020 /CNW/ -- As organizations implement work-from-home policies, managers who are used to office environments now find themselves having to manage their teams remotely; others are finding the size of their remote teams suddenly increasing. Managing a remote team successfully requires skills that many managers have not previously needed.
Global Knowledge, the world's leading tech skills training organization, is helping managers meet today's urgent challenges by offering its Managing Remote Teams course free of charge.
Global Knowledge CEO Todd Johnstone said, "This is not business as usual. The coronavirus outbreak is testing organizations like never before, with the need to keep employees safe while continuing to serve customers and ensure business continuity. So I am pleased that Global Knowledge is able to help people get through this difficult time by providing this free training."
Manager leadership is more important than ever
Global Knowledge's Managing Remote Teams course will help managers quickly get up to speed and keep their teams connected and effective, while successfully managing projects and essential information flows.
The course teaches managers how to:
- kick off a remote team
- plan effective communication with remote team members

- help remote workers feel included and trusted
- address technology issues to keep "business as usual" when business isn't "as usual"

The sessions, which begin April 2, will be delivered in Global Knowledge's interactive virtual classroom platform.
