Remote Working Consultancy and Training Services

It can be challenging to manage people who are not in the same place at the same time. There is also the challenge of learning how to use communications and collaborative technologies to manage remote working staff.

To manage a remote team effectively requires new understandings, greater self-awareness and new practices. It is essential for managers to develop appropriate management styles and effective communication. Managers need to build and maintain relationships, expectations, performance and trust.

John was able, at very short notice, to assist us in writing and consolidating our agile working business case. His ability to quickly understand our complex environment and translate our thoughts into actionable activities was outstanding. I am happy to recommend his work.

John delivered a Ways of Working and IT review for us at Global Action Plan. He was a great listener and won the work because his was the most accurate proposal for our needs. His work didn't disappoint us. He was thorough, has great client liaison, was patient with our queries and level of understanding of IT issues and new techniques. I'd be happy to work with John again and recommend him.
