Managing Remote Teams


(3 ratings)


4 Weeks


Cohort-based Course

Principles, habits, and best practices to manage remote teams and remote individual contributors

Course overview

More engagement and effectiveness

Learn how to increase the engagement, effectiveness, and accountability of working-from-home employees

Key outcomes

More accountability

Learn how to delegate objectives and follow-up on them so that people feel accountable and deliver on them, even without the day-to-day contact of in-person management.

More effectiveness

Learn how to delegate, train, follow-up, and give feedback in a way that makes people more effective, even given the communication constraints of remote working.

More engagement

Teams and individuals that transitioned from in-person to remote often report lower engagement. This is not a property of remote working, but a consequence of managers not addressing the sources of disengagement. I'll teach you how.

Higher retention

Within remote organizations, it's possible that you won't learn about people wanting to leave until it's too late. I will teach you how to address this problem proactively, leading to higher talent retention and higher job satisfaction.

What's not in the course

Legal and administrative advice

This is a course about managing people. I won't touch the legal or administrative aspects of employing or contracting people remotely


I won't touch the topic of how to hire remotely, as I don't have much practice in the subject.

Specific software

I won't discuss or recommend specific software to use. This is a course about management habits and best practices; which specific tools you use to implement them is largely irrelevant.

Technical troubleshooting

This course is about management. I assume you already have a good audio/video and software setup that enables you to properly communicate with your team, and I won't help you troubleshooting technical problems.

Course syllabus


The Remote Trap

"Tools that scale" such as large Zoom meetings, Slack, and project management software might increase your efficiency as a manager, but do they make your team more efficient effective?

Probably not.

You'll learn how to communicate in a way that increases your team's effectiveness.


Delegating & following-up

During delegation, don't only assign a task. Instead, be clear, specific, concrete, and set your subordinates for success.

Then, follow-up to grow skills and engagement.

Here, you'll learn how.


Performance management & motivation

Performance management and reviews aren't tools to evaluate effectiveness.

They are tools to put your employees on a path of growth and impact.

In this module, you'll learn how to run performance reviews and one-on-ones to increase skills, motivation, and effectiveness.



In this module, we'll review the content from the previous three sessions and will delve more in detail in the subtleties of implementation.

We already did some exercises and case studies during the first three weeks, but here we'll do more, to ensure that you'll be ready to practice what you learned.
