Leading Remotely

Leadership is all about enrolling people behind an inspiring vision, whilst simultaneously putting in place a well-executed plan which delivers on that vision. Leaders must use their drive and determination to move the organisation forward, whilst empowering individuals and teams to collaborate and deliver. The role of the leader is made all the harder when working remotely, without the benefit of face-to-face formal and informal contact.

Our Leading Remotely solution focuses on raising a leader’s self-awareness and helps them explore their leadership qualities when adapting to a virtual context. Importantly, it helps leaders reflect and plan how to shape the culture of their virtual teams to achieve high performance.

Who is it aimed at

The Leading Remotely programme is ideal for all levels of leadership from junior team leaders up to the C-suite. The colourful and memorable Lumina Spark model is used to help leaders understand the relationship between their underlying leadership preferences and how they actually behave with the team when working in a virtual context. Leaders will benefit from Lumina Spark’s smart data and simple language every step of the way.

Leaders also explore how leading remotely may trigger some of their Overextended behaviours, and what they can do to mitigate these potentially stressful situations.

Leading Remotely is designed for leaders who either work remotely or have team members who do so. It is particularly helpful for leaders who are rising to the challenge of the current global crisis and may not have had the experience of leading virtually before.

The programme will benefit any leader who wants to enhance their virtual leadership style through thoroughly understanding their strengths and leadership blind spots and how these may show up when working remotely.

How it works

The latest virtual classroom technology is used to run three sessions, each of three hours duration. Leaders self-assess themselves using the Lumina Spark and Lumina Leader models and have the option of benefitting from feedback from other leaders and staff. These sessions are built on a quantitative analysis of the leader's competencies, supported by a highly customised qualitative narrative. Appealing visual representations of a leader’s qualities and how they may respond when under pressure bring it all to life. All facets of leadership are explored, and analysis turned into actionable development plans to improve performance.

Leaders will receive a further three virtual coaching sessions, supported by access to the Lumina Learning Experience Platform. Leaders set their own development objectives and learn interactively using the Lumina Splash App and our host of e-learning support, all designed to maximise learning transfer back into the virtual workplace.

Experienced Practitioners and designers customise and blend these sessions to form their own unique leadership journey.
