Understanding human mindset and behaviours to enable successful virtual working is essential

As public sector organisations, we have a real opportunity to reform, re-imagine and re-invent ourselves. As we continue to work virtually, we need to ensure we make virtual working work! Thus, enabling us to rethink what we do and how we do it to better serve our communities.

As we continue with virtual working for the foreseeable future, our workforce will require insight and guidance to make this as successful and seamless as possible, to anticipate any pitfalls and to ensure that employees and (especially) managers are well supported along the way.

Underpinned by academic research and theory in neuroscience and occupational psychology, this programme will provide you with the human insights needed and practical toolkits to help support a new era of virtual working.

Our expert associate Catherine Pugh will share insights and strategies to overcome the paradoxes of virtual working, through her interactive virtual sessions.

At the core of her programme is Catherine’s academic research and model which highlights the key ingredients of successful virtual working. Catherine will take you through each step of the framework which centres around trust; exploring how each aspect plays a critical role in enabling virtual teams to flourish.
