Chameleon Improves Remote Team Management Thursday 11 October 2001 PDF Print Chameleon Training and Consulting, a member of the British Airways group of companies, has unveiled its Managing Remote Teams training course. The training programme addresses the specific performance, motivation, and communications issues faced by organisations which are increasingly turning to remote team working to address the changing needs of their market place. Communication challenges arise whenever employees are asked to work outside the office environment, both within and beyond national borders, utilising IT and telecoms solutions to deliver and report upon their activities. In such instances managers find it increasingly difficult not only to manage performance but also to give feedback and offer motivation to employees who can sometimes feel isolated. The Managing Remote Teams training course provides practical skills and strategies, such as the use of remote communication tools and the appropriate management style to successfully manage a remote team when the traditional face-to-face management techniques are no longer appropriate. Chameleon's team of expert Consultants can help managers communicate a compelling vision, provide inspiration and motivate their teams to achieve optimum performance. This is achieved by looking at best practice, teaching new communication and performance management skills, which address the specific requirements of remote workers; and delivering a bespoke training solution tailored to the organisation. Managers need to recognise the feelings of stress and isolation which remote workers may experience, and help them to achieve improved levels of job satisfaction and motivation. This in turn provides customers with continuity and an improved level of service. Head of Consultancy Services, Philippa Muress says, "British businesses are currently experiencing a dramatic shift in working culture with the trend for remote working growing faster than in any other European country. Chameleon's Managing Remote Teams programme helps develop more effective remote working by utilising technology innovations and developing communication and management strategies which address the very specific needs of remote workers." She continues: "Effective remote team management allows businesses to make the transition from traditional working practices to remote working and increases performance and competitive advantage." Over the past fifteen years, Chameleon's product range has increased and its customer base broadened.
