Is there an assumption that a strong, experienced and competent leader will make an equally capable virtual leader? Leadership has the potential to be a lonely and isolating place. Now with us all working at a distance, is there a danger that this sense of isolation and loneliness could be further compounded for everyone in the team, not just the leader?

This course is delivered via our virtual classroom and in three bite-sized sessions. The course enables leaders and managers of all levels to develop the skills and behaviours to build and maintain a sense of belonging amongst their team, even when working remotely.


why come on the course?

  • Are you a Manager or Leader working from home for the first time?
  • Have you felt isolated from your team at times?
  • Do you want to understand how to adapt your leadership skills for the virtual world?
  • If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then this course is definitely for you.

What is it?

An interactive virtual classroom workshop led by our expert facilitator. We’ll get to see first hand the impact of poor communication amongst a remote team and understand the wider implications on their effectiveness and productivity.

We’ll explore how the leader needs to be different in order to restore the sense of belonging and create a culture of high performance amongst the team.


What will I do on the day?

Through practical group and individual activities and discussion, this course will help you identify what’s challenging about leading from a distance as well as giving you techniques to support you with the shift in mindset that’s needed for your new situation.

As you work through the session you’ll gather practical skills and ideas which you can apply to your own individual context, and at the end of the session produce an action plan to help you to move forwards.

embedding the learning.

This interactive, virtual classroom based session uses our actors to give learners an opportunity to explore and understand how different managers and leaders might be feeling.

Through expert facilitation, we provide practical steps that ensure the feeling of isolation is addressed and leadership skills are adapted for the new normal we find ourselves in.

We embed the learning by giving each learner the chance to discuss and explore different approaches.

Some faq's about The Isolated Leader Training.

0.1 What is Theatre based learning?

Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.

Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions). This course uses our actors to both demonstrate presentation skills and often made mistakes and techniques with the ability for all learners to present and receive feedback

0.2What are the benefits of the Isolated Leader training?
This course is designed to support managers and leaders who are working remotely by bringing elements of their leadership skills and style to the fore and exploring how they may need to adapt to the virtual world. Covid-19 has changed the world of working considerably. Entire companies are now working from home and that includes Managers and Leaders who may not be used to this approach to leading their team. This may lead to a sense of isolation and this course will explore how to ensure Leaders and Managers support themselves AND their teams.
0.3Why is the Isolated Leader training important?
Feeling isolated can impact mental wellbeing and how we interact with others. This course will ensure we face up and discuss the impact of isolation to leaders and managers and how this might affect the way we have managed our employees and the subsequent impact it could be having on them.

Discussing and learning in the traditional ‘class-room’ is effective, but long-term memory is better stimulated by having an experience. Our approach using experiential and drama-based learning methods delivers this and leads to more sustained learning.

    sustained blended learning.

    Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
