A personal guide to how you can meet employees' needs remotely
Get the best performance from all types of people when managing remotely. Be confident you're giving them all the support they need to succeed.
The world has changed over the past few years, and what was once unusual is now the norm in many workplaces. This includes managing people from a distance, at least part of the time. As managers and leaders have begun adjusting to this new way of working, many have realised that their previous experience and existing management techniques don't work so effectively when people are remote.
Managers who succeed in the virtual world are those who are prepared and able to flex their approach, learn new techniques, and try out new ideas. Their goal? To get the same or better performance from team members, even when people are working remotely.
In this personalised look at how different types of employees respond to the unique circumstances which come from being managed remotely, you'll learn how to flex your approach to get the best out of others, and how to ensure you're providing the right level of support and interaction to enable successful task completion.
