Truth You Can Act On:

  1. Focus on the Result. Lead with the end in mind and help your people see their goals clearly. Paint that picture of what success looks like.
  2. Leverage Technology with Video. Encourage both audio and visual aspects for remote meetings to bridge that distance.
  3. Treat Your Remote Workforce like Insiders. Take a look at how you interact with both 1099 and remote employees. How can you enhance this to treat them more like a trusted colleague?
  4. Constant Gratitude. As a leader, express your thanks in hand-written notes, calls, or texts. Gratitude is another key to relationship building.
