In the context of COVID-19, organisations across the world are forced to operate in a remote and virtual working environment, which appears to be the new normal for the foreseeable future. Leaders and managers in organisations need new capabilities for leading and managing their teams effectively during and post-crisis without any adverse implications for employees engagement, productivity and organisational performance.

During this programme, the participants will get an opportunity to advance their management and leadership skills in a remote environment through small groups, case discussions, and informal interactions, to explore best practices and new research, share insights, compare experiences, and as well as exchange new ideas with academics and leading practitioners.

The programme imparts a brilliant mix of theoretical concepts, insights from practice, constructive tools and techniques in a highly interactive and engaging e-learning environment ideal for peer learning.

The participants get direct access to LUMS faculty and engage with peers through interactive class discussions, simulations and group project work that helps reinforce learning and networking among the group.




The 3-day live online programme will focus on:

  • How to lead and manage work and teams in a crisis situation and a remote/virtual work environment
  • Leadership styles needed to ensure continued engagement and productivity of team members during a crisis or remote working environment
  • Issues of work-life balance and communication styles that must be considered to manage remote teams and work
  • How best to understand and manage behavioural changes in response to the changing nature of work and performance expectations?
