Virtual Teams, Remote Working and Flexible Working
Training Courses


Five reasons why you should choose a course from Knowledge Ability

  1. Your course leader, Dr John Gundry, is an international expert in virtual teaming, teleworking and e-working who advises and trains exclusively on these topics. Other companies may send you a general trainer who lacks expert knowledge and cannot handle off-script topics.
  2. Our world-leading course content is based on John Gundry's over 20 years' experience of virtual teaming, teleworking and e-working, the comments, contributions and insights of thousands of participants from hundreds of organisations, and a rigorous analysis of international research.
  3. Courses focus exclusively on the practical skills and approaches that determine performance and well-being in the remote e-workplace. They are delivered in a clear, concise and to-the-point manner. We don't waste your time or money on inflated courses padded with general material.
  4. In-house courses are tailored to your requirements from a uniquely-wide range of topics.
  5. We are a small company with low overheads and that is reflected in our prices. You are not paying for head office staff.

The essential curriculum for teleworkers and their managers. This one-day Workshop equips participants with the essential practical knowledge, skills and approaches that make teleworking a long-term success.

   o    If you want to prevent isolation and a worsening work-life balance becoming the realities of home working,
   o    If moving from occasional to full-time teleworking has brought an avalanche of unsuspected problems,
   o    Or if you want to start or refresh a telework programme with people having the right expectations, skills and approaches.

Who should attend: Teleworkers; managers of teleworkers; intact teams of teleworkers and their managers; those strategising teleworking and flexible working programmes.

   o    If you want to prevent isolation and lack of trust undermining team spirit and engagement,
   o    Or if you want to equip your remote workers with career-enhancing new skills for the workplace of the future.

Who should attend: Members of virtual or remote teams or distributed work groups or departments; anyone who works remotely from their managers and colleagues; those strategising remote working programmes.
