Trainer Profile

Phil McKew

I personally find that delegates build their philosophy and action plan around the 5 Ts of remote management, which form the basis of this event ie:

Trust – challenging the idea that ‘the mice will play while the cat’s away’ but instead managing remotely by principles, ground rules, results and outputs.

Targets – ensuring the team truly understands what ‘success’ means.

Tracking – agreeing those key things that do need to be measured and monitored.

Team Spirit – sharing many ideas on building team identity, loyalty and motivation of team members even if working at a distance nationally or internationally.

Technology – tips on use of tools such as e-mail, audio and video conferencing.
