The Top 7 Imperatives to Successfully Manage a Remote Team


Session Description

Quickly disappearing are the days of companies where all employees are based in one office.  Research has suggested that now 73% of US companies has some part of their workforce working virtually or remote from the main office.
Managing a remote or mobile workforce is very different from managing a team based in one central location.  The days of walking down the hall to review and monitor employees is becoming less of a reality in today’s companies.  True, many management techniques and skills parallel those used in managing a central based workforce, however, there are additional techniques needed, that a manager of remote employees would be remiss to ignore.  Managers of remote working teams are not supervisors – you can’t watch over someone you can’t see.  You can’t know that everyone arrived by 8, or is sitting at their desk, by walking down the hall to check on them.  Being a Manager of a group of remotely dispersed employees takes a different set of management techniques.  In this presentation, we will cover the top 7 imperatives a manager needs to successfully manage this different employee structure, including:
• How best to communicate with dispersed teams
• How to foster collaboration and team work
• How to create an accountability system to ensure remote employees are getting the job done
• How to best motivate them
