Maintaining order while managing long-distance teams and employees can often raise plenty of issues. This training program will help determine the fastest way to get a poorly performing location up to speed and offer attendees pointers on how to quickly and accurately check the quality of products or services at any location. It will also discuss ideal frequency for site visits, and best ways to approach a site problem without alienating anyone.

Why Should You Attend:

As enterprises have been growing far and wide, often international in scope, we find ourselves as executives and managers with our talent spread farther and farther, often at dozens and hundreds of locations. How do we ‘get a better handle’ on all this?

Are you concerned about how much time and productivity your people are wasting?

What about lost energy, efficiency and effectiveness, especially because your workforce is so spread out?

Would you like to ‘tame the paper tiger’ and reduce so much needless paperwork?

Have you ever been concerned about employees not following the rules, not taken by ‘out of sight, out of mind’ motto?

Would you like to be able to more effectively spot problems, even when you are hundreds or thousands of miles away?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then come join in as the instructor leads attendees through these important topics, and addresses key questions and answers to effectively improve team performance, no matter how widely distributed everyone is.
