3 Tips to Successfully Manage Virtual Employees

3 Tips to Successfully Manage Virtual Employees | New Leadership | Scoop.it

In 1997 I asked my boss to consider allowing me to telecommute on a part-time basis. My proposal went down in flames. Although the company already had field-based people who telecommuted full-time, and my boss herself worked from home on a regular basis, the prevailing mindset was work was someplace you went, not something you did.

Fast forward a few years to the early-2000’s and I’m supervising team members who worked remotely full-time. The exodus continued for a few years and by the mid-2000’s nearly half my team worked virtually. Nearly 20 years after I submitted my telecommuting proposal the world has become a smaller place. My organization has offices in Canada, the U.K., Singapore, and scores of colleagues work out of home offices around the globe.

3 Tips on Coaching Managers to Be Better Coaches ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog

3 Tips on Coaching Managers to Be Better Coaches ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Teams led by managers who focus on strengths report engagement levels of 61 percent, while teams led by managers who focus on weaknesses report engagement levels of just 45 percent. That makes sense, but here’s the kicker: When managers ignore their employees, engagement plummets to a mere two percent.

One of the most important, leadership skills to develop in managers is the ability to coach effectively—including how to connect with employees and get the best out of them on an ongoing basis. From my own experience, here are three employee performance management best practices I’ve found effective in turning frontline managers into first-rate coaches.

"Are You Giving The Right Message With Your Leadership?"

"Are You Giving The Right Message With Your Leadership?" | New Leadership | Scoop.it
 One thing that’s abundantly clear from the various studies on employee engagement and organizational success is that today’s leaders need to make a greater effort building lines of communication with those they lead.

Embedded within those lines of communication is not only the need to foster and build relationships with those under our care, but also the requirement that we use these opportunities to provide feedback that will help our employees to better understand both what’s required of them and what we value in their contributions.

(From the article): Stay calm and be positive. Calm is contagious. And so is panic.Smile. Carry yourself with confidence. And try not to wear your emotions on your sleeve. I am not saying to deny our normal human functions but be aware that effective communication is about 7% the words we say. The rest is about body language, tone and delivery.

Authenticity is key. 

(From the article) If you are looking to be an inspiring leader, it is important to be an authentic leader. Authentic leaders are ethical leaders. They've identified their ethical codes, and they never compromise on what they believe to be right and wrong. Authentic leaders are inspiring because they know who they are and they don't let anyone keep them from making a decision that they know is right. They have integrity and a firm moral code, and they manage to stay sensible and stable even during the most difficult times.
