Successful remote management

Successful remote management

Let's take a moment and all agree that it's 100% possible to manage your team effectively even when you're not together every day, and many companies are citing increased productivity, engagement, and morale on the part of their remote workforce, because working remotely gives people the freedom to work the hours that are most Makes sense for them so that they can increase their productivity and overcome their other obligations.

Now, let's get to the good stuff, here's what you need to know to manage your team from afar while keeping productivity and morale high.

Successful remote management

Here are some tips for adopting an effective remote management mindset.

Set clear expectations and deadlines

Provide clear expectations and goals, let your employees know you are there for them, then let them go to work, set expectations in them and then make sure everyone understands what is expected and any questions are answered.

And if you fail to set clear deadlines, employees often go one of two directions—either they assume it's urgent and give up on everything, or they put it in the background because no deadline is mentioned.

Focus on goals, not hours

 Use the SMART Objective Framework to help you set clear, meaningful goals with realistic timelines, and judge employees for their performance rather than hours.

Have a daily team briefing

 Where everyone can say what they are working on and when they are being held accountable or need help, and since there will be no more going through each other and stepping in when you hear something you can help with, you must coordinate a way to continue those conversations with employees effectively.

Here are some strategies to help you better communicate with your team while working remotely.

Define Communication Channels Internal Service Level Agreements

Decide what channels your team uses and for what purposes, and how quickly do you respond to emails? What about e-mail applications? What channel is used in emergency situations? Most people have very different answers to these questions, so it's best to take the feedback and come up with a plan that everyone is aware of and can agree to, as this also helps ensure people feel comfortable working remotely.

Determine basic working hours

 Ask your team about their needs and try to adapt to schedules. If one of your employees has a child at home, you may need business meetings about nap schedules, etc. If possible, designate a few hours a day that everyone can be present and online at the same time, Allow employees to work from the rest of their schedules to themselves.

Make time for non-work conversations

 When all the conversations are scheduled and we don't want to "disturb" people, it can be hard to remember that we're all fully human and thus hard to keep morale up, plan a virtual happy hour, and encourage your employees to schedule virtual lunches or coffee dates with each other.

Provide constructive feedback in private

Use a private video chat room and always use video, do not give constructive feedback via email as video communication gives the message better.

For comment chats, performance-related chats, and anything that might be misinterpreted, the video is the best, as it's as close to a real face-to-face conversation as you can get.

Always give feedback on time.
