Supervising Off-Site Employees Who Are Out-of-Sight... But Not Out-of-Mind On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

For managers who want to improve communication with and increase the performance of employees they don't see day-to-day

Course Description/Agenda

For managers who want to improve communication with and increase the performance of employees they don't see day-to-day. It takes special skills to manage employees you have little or no contact with. No matter how much you put into it, it's a difficult process to really understand what's happening at a location miles and miles away.
Attend this intensive one-day seminar to learn how to get more from off-site employees than you ever thought possible.
