Your team is now distributed. And it is a time of emergency.

And there are a lot of uncertainties: changes in organizing, from co-located to remote, difficulties both in business and the personal lives of people.

How to help people get things done in this situation? And how to help people stay positive and focus on the work as well, in addition to adjusting to this challenging time, with the focus they can spare?

What to take into account? How to make sure that work works? How do I lead myself and others?

We will explore tools and practices and help you set up practical experiments that fit your own challenges right now.

Responsive Remote Teams Leadership Training

is a training for leaders and change agents like you, whether you are a manager or an expert looking to make a positive impact.

In the training, you will:

  • learn and explore topics together with other people enthusiastic about the same topics
  • take your learnings into the everyday work through experiments and improvement initiatives you come up with the support of your learning peers
  • reflect together with other participants to learn about both your and their experiments and to design even better suited experiments to continue your learning and improvement journey

The training has built-in customisation features so that it is adapted to the interests of participants by default.

For Whom?

It is for you, who want to learn more about leading remote teams, and learning more about leading towards the culture of new work.

Whether you are a team lead, manager, leader, small business owner or an executive, scrum master or a product owner, a product manager or project manager, or even a specialist with some leadership responsibilities.

We also offer this training for companies as a internal training and improvement initiative.

The best of both worlds

We have taken a long hard look at the recently published Management 3.0 Fundamentals Online Workshop. And we've reflected on our own experiences with facilitating Management 3.0 and the Future of Work Leadership trainings.

And we've distilled all that wisdom into one training to rule them all!

Read about the training curriculums that we have carried out together recently with our partners.

Our Training Format

The training will consist of 10 hours of remote interactive workshops. In addition to that, you will receive material and exercises to improve in your daily work and take what you learn in the workshop into practice.

There will be 4 remote workshops, 2.5 hours each, one per week. The week between the sessions is for you to deepen your learning through our exercises and take it to practice in small ways through your own experiments at work.

You will start your learning journey with an interview with our coach, Antti Kirjavainen.

You will have the option of continuing with personal coaching or a coaching group after the workshop.

What you will learn in our training

  • How to involve everyone in improving how the work works?
  • How to manage the larger system instead of micromanaging people and teams?
  • How to co-create better practices for remote work and meetings?
  • How does complexity thinking help with dealing with uncertainty, difficult times and becoming more adaptable? And how to apply it in practice?
  • What motivates people and how to discuss motivation? How to help people find out what motivates them and others?
  • How to create an environment where people are proactive about their freedom and responsibility?
  • How to communicate better in remote teams? How to have better remote meetings?
  • How to grow a culture of beneficial feedback into your team or organization?
  • How to build a practical culture of experimentation and learning?

Our Coaches

Antti Kirjavainen

My agile leadership journey started in 2008. I believe that commitment to developing business goes hand in hand with creating a healthy environment for people to work together and thrive.

As a playful and kind seeker of wisdom I promote appreciation of people, nature and healthy relationships between them.

I have coached many teams and organisations, in banking, media, teleoperator and hardware product development domains among others.

Training highlights

  • Agile Leadership for the Change Leaders (2019), joint training programme for 100 participants from Finnair and Yleisradio
  • Culture of New Work Leadership Training (2015-), 3-month training and transformation programme, 200+ participants from various companies

Tero Kadenius

I have been an active player in the agile and lean circles for over a decade.During that time I have facilitated dozens of workshops and helped change agents in various domains find new tools, practices and experiments to improve their work, productivity, resiliency and well-being.

I know how to help distributed teams overcome their challenges and reap the benefits of this new way of working. For the past 5 years I have worked with numerous teams as a Scrum Master and an agile coach. Key outcomes have been helping team members move away from rigid top-down process driven ways of working towards continuous improvement through experiments and self-organisation. Also, as a co-founder of our distributed company, I have learned a lot about how to make the work work in a remote setting.

All this has been a huge learning experience for me. This journey has inspired me to co-author two books on modern leadership, organisations and complexity.
