You shouldn’t fear this “new normal". Remote work can be good for business, but leaders and managers need to understand how to manage their teams remotely.
The advancements in technology and the diversity of the roles that we carry out today means that our teams and those who work with us are rarely co-located.
One of the key challenges for the leaders and managers of today is to overcome the remoteness with which we work and to ensure that our people continue to be supported and valued. It’s also important to have the correct balance of supervision and control. Too much and people feel stifled and monitored. Too little and people feel undervalued or invisible.
