Managing Your Remote Team

We have recently talked about engaging with your membership when you can't meet in person and communication strategies.

Today, I want to discuss managing your remote team.

As we are all aware, the past few months have seen a dramatic shift in the way we are running our organisations, with a move from having staff working in our bricks and mortar building, to individuals working from their home office / lounge / bedroom...

This has opened up a host of issues and hick-ups that we haven't needed to address before.

Welcome to 2020, the year of the Learning Curve!

What characteristics should we be fostering in our Remote Team?

  • Excellent Communication
  • Goal Focus
  • Flexibility
  • Commitment
  • Ownership
  • Accountability
  • Independance

What characteristics should we be fostering as a Remote Team Manager:

  • Prompt responses
  • Clear Communication
  • Fostering Ownership
  • Availability
  • Career Growth Encouragement

While the idea of managing your remote team is daunting, the benefits are real. No one person is left with the responsibility of completing the required tasks.  Your organisation is supported by strong relationships between the team members.  Your membership base will find that their queries receive a faster response.  The tone of your communications will be warmer and more welcoming because of the team's investment in the organisations success.  Finally, management don't need to put as much energy into overseeing employees.

    web sites.
