Resources to Help You and Your Team During This Time

Successfully Managing Remote Teams

While remote working has many benefits, managing the team when we are all working from home can be a tricky business. We want to ensure our teams are fully supported, staying motivated, and equipped to get the work done, but what is the best way to do it?

We've had a huge demand from clients and our Big Fish Training friends and family to tackle this subject, so we've developed another free webinar.

During the 30 session Emma Ewing will take you through how team and individual dynamics change when under pressure and at a distance - and how to manage those changes. You'll learn what to focus on and what to avoid to ensure the team stays connected, motivated, and on track.

We know that the added stress of this sudden change has made many managers feel like they are flying blind, so the webinar is designed to provide reassurance that you're guiding your teams in the best way you can and to help you add some best practice techniques to support everyone - including yourself!

How to Be Super Effective on a Video Call

Thanks for tuning in to our free webinar with Dannie last week. Here's the replay to help you refine your approach to those pesky calls. Feel free to share with your teams and anyone you work with who'd find it useful.

We want to help the Big Fish family of clients, friends, collaborators and partners during this time and some of you have asked us for additional resources on managing a team remotely, so this will be the next free resource to appear. Do get in touch if you have any questions for us about the replay or if there's anything else you need help with.

Fly the Jet: a Story

Just as we were moving into the current crisis, Emma shared a story with us and we liked it so much that we made it into a short video that people have told us was helpful to them. So here it is! We hope it's helpful to you as well.

If you're like most people, you and your teams are probably having good and bad days right now. This is a highly unusual and stressful time which can sap performance and mental energy and, for some people, it can seriously impact their well-being.

Dannie-Lu has created a reassuring guide for you and your teams to help everyone make their way through this situation with grace under pressure, providing tactics which will bolster well-being through the good and bad days, without avoiding the seriousness of the current situation.

Making your way through lockdown and beyond

A 60 minute webinar delivered live to you and your staff will explore what happens to us humans during drastic change, in terms of our emotions, physical and mental health. The webinar will help us to understand why we react as we do in uncertain times, plan ways to outsmart our unhelpful thinking and learn how to turn obstacles into opportunities. Most importantly, you'll hear from Dannie-Lu first-hand exactly how to create coping strategies that will work for you and ask questions about the process.

We will look at ways to manage ourselves through the current changes using a range of practical techniques. We will address the importance of routine and each participant will come away from the session knowing how to personally navigate through the current crisis, restore a sense of calm self-compassion and employ a helpful perspective for getting through tough days. This ensures you come away from the session with a personal road map that will help you navigate through this challenging time and beyond with clarity and purpose. To book or find out more, please get in touch.
