Team Dynamics, Communications, Burnout / Remote Work Challenges & Opportunities:

All things related to leading the “people” part of teams including relationships, communications, and burn-out. As the world of work has shifted, many of these focus on the unique challenges and opportunities of remote work.

How to Lead Remote Teams Using Persona-Based Empathy

Many leaders have been through a crash-course in how to lead remote teams over recent months. Managing people well has always included understanding their individual circumstances, personalities, and styles. However, that’s been a challenge for many teams that previously shared office space and are now remote. The fact is that remote work (and education and leisure) are probably here to stay for the near future. We’ll all do better if we can strengthen our remote-first management, leadership, and teamwork skills.

Enhance your leadership chops by using empathy-mapping to understand each of your employee groups. Empathy maps help you think through the unique drivers and challenges, and best support tactics, for each of your employee groups. To get started, review the maps below for four personas that are common in today’s workforce.

How present are you when communicating with your colleagues, reports or manager? Mindful communication opens the door to deeper team connection and impact, and contributes to the overall resilience of a team.

Remote work took off this year. At the end of August 2020, Gallup reported that one in four workers is working entirely from home, and that the number of days telecommuters are working from home per month has doubled since last October. When the dust settles post-COVID, many companies will retain and refine the flexible work policies they’ve recently adopted.

Managing remote employees and teams requires a different skill set and approach than face-to-face management. If you’re still working out the kinks in your own approach, take a look at remote work best practices from RallyBright and Mindful Communications below.

With millions of workers now many months into working from home, we’re seeing some big effects on employee mental health and wellbeing.
