MOSES LAKE — Members of the community are invited to take part in a new remote management training series being offered by Big Bend Community College’s Center for Business and Industry Services (CBIS) this week. The training will help those currently working from home learn new strategies for managing and communicating with their teams virtually.
The training consists of two workshops from Nash Consulting. Both workshops are scheduled for this Thursday, April 16.
The first workshop, Managing Remotely with Mind and Heart, is based on Nash Consulting’s popular Managing with Mind and Heart series. In this workshop, participants will learn how to virtually build morale and maintain a culture of collaboration and connection with their teams while apart.
The three-hour workshop begins at 9 a.m. and runs until Noon.
The second workshop, Effective, Productive (Even Enjoyable) Remote Meetings, is a two-hour workshop that will cover the ins and outs of holding effective virtual meetings. Participants will learn best practices for building a remote meeting culture of engagement, participation and positive energy.
The Remote Meetings workshop runs from 2 to 4 p.m.
“This training is for anyone that is teleworking and managing online meetings,” said BBCC Center for Business and Industry Services Director Beth Laszlo. “The focus is managing a meeting, but I think anyone that attends a meeting, it would be helpful information. We can all contribute towards the success of an online meeting platform – whether we are leading it or participating in it.”
Both workshops will take place virtually on Zoom, a remote video conferencing service. Zoom software is free to download and can be used on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
Participants will receive a link and download instructions after registration.
The cost to take both workshops is $270. Separately, the Managing Remotely workshop is $200, and the Remote Meetings workshop is $100.

Participants have until Wednesday, April 15 to register.
