In this video, I talk about some quick and inexpensive things that you can do to ease the transition and help manage your remote team.
This list of tips will help you set up yourself and your team for success.
1. Weekly Positives
Start the week off right by listing positives that your team has achieved together.
We get fired up after going through the positives and then go into our daily tasks.
At the end of each quarter, we look back and see what we achieved as a team.
2. Have a Daily Check-In
We use Zoom to have a daily face-to-face video check in every morning.
In this meeting, we have a bit of banter, set the agenda and go through each person’s objective for the day.
It’s essential to see each other’s faces and have some light-hearted conversations mixed in with work talk.
One of the hardest things about working from home, especially if you’re used to an office environment, is the sense of loneliness and isolation that can set in.
3. Communication Tools
It is to keep your team connected and communicating throughout the working day.
We use Slack for our day to day questions and Asana to assign tasks.
These tools are both available for free.
4. Keep it Fun
Don’t forget to add some fun into your team environment and keep morale high.
I still buy Friday beers for my team.
Little things like this are helping keep spirits high and my team as a unit.
Hopefully, you can take a few tips from this quick little video, and you can implement some of these things with your team if you are struggling with your remote team.
