Remote Work Round-Up
October 19, 2017
Working remotely brings about loads of challenges, but one that is often ignored is how to cultivate leadership from a staff largely working from home?
Jody Greenstone Miller, CEO and co-founder of the Business Talent Group, recently wrote about this very topic on Ozy.com, with an article titled "How to Cultivate Remote Leaders".
In it, she writes:
"While positive on many levels, work fulfillment, which requires renewed challenges and growth, can be harder to ensure for remote workers. So how can we effectively manage remote workers and provide the mentoring and development to help them grow into real business leaders?
The good news is that many answers are already close at hand. In fact, you might say they've been waiting for us to appreciate them for years. That's because managing remote workers is a lot like managing your parents — they're mostly brilliant, sometimes frustrating and always full of potential."
Greenstone Miller recommends the following:
1. Schedule occasional face-to-face time
2. No micro-managing
3. Be trustworthy of others
4. Be frank, but use your best judgement
5. Encourage others to read & learn
6. Give space
