Communication is key. We hear it all the time in all aspects of managing a team and running a business. However, when managing a remote team, whether new or old, communication has never been more important. It has to be done clearly, early and often. Performance expectations remain the same whether in the office or working remote. Another key component is lead by example. Check in on your people often. Recurring meetings to talk about projects and work flow or to share concerns and hurdles, and allowing space for them to share their needs in order for them to be more productive. Make sure the meetings add value and aren’t just busy work or babysitting.
