5 Things I've Learned (Some the Hard Way) About Being an Exceptional Remote Manager



In today’s episode of the Want To Work There podcast, I reflect on five core lessons I’ve learned over 10 years of being a remote manager. Managing a team remotely does have its advantages, but it also comes with its own set of challenges and lessons learned. Unfortunately, I learned some of those lessons the hard way. Hopefully by sharing, I can spare you (and your team) from having to experience the same!



In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The one assumption you should never make when managing remotely.

  • How the “butts in seats” mentality has carried over to remote working and what you must do to eliminate the problem.

  • The one step you MUST always take before having a difficult conversation with a team member remotely.

  • Why consistency is king when it comes to employee 1:1s.

  • The importance of not just talking the talk, but also walking the walk - and what that looks like when you aren’t in the same room as your team!
