Managing Remote Teams Using Management Drives and Appreciative Leadership


Team members of clinical trial teams in most cases do not work from the same location. In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, physical contact is even less. In many countries, working from home is the current practice, which, due to its longer duration, can lead to increasing demotivation. Meetings, leadership, and feedback at work take place remotely which makes it more difficult to assess and meet the needs of employees. In addition, collaboration problems are more likely to arise and there are fewer opportunities to overcome them. In this workshop, you will learn how to use Management Drives and Appreciative Leadership to understand employee needs when it comes to remote work and how to improve collaboration and communication to make clinical research processes more efficient. 

This inspiring and interactive workshop will be online and live via zoom on Wednesday 6 October 2021, 16:00-18:00 CET / 10:00-12:00 EST. The content of the workshops is provided for for free. However, we ask a small fee of € 25,- (including VAT) for registration and administration. This also assures a dedicated audience during the workshop. You can register for this workshop via the Register button below. You can also download a compilation of the previous workshop in January via the download page.
