Here are three ways to boost your remote team’s performance.
- Schedule in rapid-fire communication. Research shows aligning schedules around communication bursts keeps the team in sync.
- Diversify your communication mediums. Be intentional about communication tools. Video, text, email and audio all have a role to play.
- Encourage family. When you work from home, family is an animating force throughout the day. Encourage your remote team to talk about their kids, partner, pets, etc. It will strengthen your team’s bond!
- Make it easy to ask for help. A remote environment can feel isolating. Ensure everyone feels seen and knows how to ask for help when they need it.
