Business leaders are fast learning that it is possible for their teams to work from home, without compromising productivity or hurting sales. But, it does require adjustments in leadership. Effective leadership of remote teams, in a distributed world, is a core capability that is a prerequisite in the future of work. But, where does one start?
When managers are thrust into a remote work environment, they are forced to evaluate performance based on outcomes rather than time-in-seat. Remote work stops working when you can’t trust the person on the other end of the screen. This is why micromanagement and trying to control how remote workers spend their time is toxic and counterproductive. Instead, remote managers need to build and earn trust. They have to learn to vest their teams with decision-making power and more autonomy and work towards an employee-friendly culture anchored in psychological safety.
