“Leading at a Distance” is part of the daily experience of internationally operating organizations. In this second part of our series, we focus on geographical distance. How can you establish “presence” and “contact” in a geographically separated team?
Discover ways how you as a leader can foster connectivity
- by giving your team its proper heartbeat to collaborate
- by defining appropriate paths of access: how do you, for example, implement an open-door policy in a geographically dispersed team?
- by using a rich set of communication formats, which go beyond purely issue related meetings?
- by making sure that there is enough ”overlap” for team interaction, while at the same time respecting employee’s private time and sharing the burden of work hour flexibility in an equitable way?
