Managing a remote team can be a challenge. Still, there are ways to foster collaboration, trust, and an environment of clear communication to ensure peak performance, mutual respect, and a culture of collaboration. According to Yosh Eisbart, serial entrepreneur, published author, and board advisor, it’s important to ensure your team members are compensated fairly but don’t stop there. He wants his employees to have a literal stake in the company both emotionally and financially.
In this video, hear the story of how Yosh has infused a DNA of collaboration that makes top-tier talent want to stick around.
Here are more ways to successfully collaborate with remote teams:
While establishing regular, reliable means of communication is key to ensuring that your people feel valued and understood, it’s also important to set achievable goals when assigning tasks and to let the team know your expectations. This way, everyone on the team is on the same page when it comes to deadlines and deliverables. We use the EOS model of yearly rocks and quarterly rocks that are tied to each person’s contribution. To foster successful collaboration, encourage team members to work together, share ideas, and communicate regularly.
Creating a sense of trust is equally important to cultivating a successful remote team. Make sure your team can trust and depend on each other for support, advice, and resources. When issues arise, the team needs to be able to come to a compromise quickly and effectively.
Finally, it’s important to provide incentives and rewards for meeting deadlines, staying on budget, and accomplishing successful projects. This will give the team a goal to work toward and show that their hard work is acknowledged and appreciated.
By following these steps, it is possible to create a successful remote team that is collaborative and efficient. Clear communication, achievable goals, trust, and incentives are the keys to successful team management and productivity.
