FLR | 13 Tips For Leading and Managing Remote Team’s | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

This past week, we were working with a new Corporate Partner. Our meeting was on zoom & we had an unexpected guest.

Her cat.

At first, you could tell she was slightly embarrassed, but then as we all chuckled & shared our “policy” around 4 legged unexpected guests, you needed to introduce them.

I find that interesting as Ironically working remotely, in many ways can make for a greater sense of connecting with people. In the office, while you get to know people, it was usually that picture on their desk where you have a sense of the other dimensions of people’s lives.

Many organizations have been continually challenged with developing a deeper sense of motivation & culture over this pandemic year.

In the pandemic, we spend most of our time, virtually in our colleague’s homes – I know in our team, we have taken the time to get to know all of our pets, plants art, etc.

People are engaged when they are known – when they are seen, where they are heard.

Remember, the human.

Alan.
