Managing Remote Teams

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”

Regardless if your technology and offsite setup is top-notch, managing a remote team is not an easy success. In our current working climate – adjusting to our new normal of work from home due to COVID-19 lockdowns and quarantine – team leaders need to be proficient at driving geographically spread individuals into a unified team unit, despite having limited or no opportunity to build relationships face to face. In fact, in today’s increasingly challenging economic climate, managers are under renewed pressure to create a high-performing team without expanding their carbon footprint.
