Remote Employees

It’s hard to figure out for managers what kind of people make the best, most productive remote employees.

Optimism is the quality to look for, while the trait to avoid is people-pleasin...

Optimists

Self-motivation is a great quality for remote workers, as they are at home, only accessible through email or through video conferencing to the manager.

High levels of enthusiasm, a positive approach and choice of words provide clues to the manager if someone has an optimistic frame of mind.

People Pleasers

If a manager is getting to hear only what is pleasant to hear, at all times, it can be a cause for concern. Remote employees must be willing to say things that aren’t going right, and most of the time, there are many such things. If they can disagree with you, it’s a good sign.

How cellular systems are different

Phones need to be close to the base station for a good signal. Many cell towers mean you can talk to the one that's closest to you.

What is amazing about the development of cellular systems is that it automatically switched which base station the phone talks to as its location changed.

Major improvements to cellular networks

  • The first-generation cellular systems converted your voice to an analogue signal.
  • The second-generation systems digitized your voice, then send it as a data link to improve stability and security. It could also transmit data across, making it useful to send photos or information, but data moved too slow.
  • Subsequent cellular network generations used increasingly wider bandwidths and were powered by a denser network of base stations.

Communication challenges for remote teams

  • Body language. Even when we share the same space, the tone of a text or of an email is left wide open to interpretation and can generate anxiety.
  • The delay between our messages can often postpone or hide emotional reactions to our comments. Lacking an immediate response, we can become distracted, second-guess ourselves, or even grow frustrated with our teams.

3 types of distance in remote teams

  • Physical (place and time)
  • Operational (team size, bandwidth and skill levels)
  • Affinity (values, trust, and interdependency).

The best way for managers to drive team performance is by focusing on reducing affinity distance.
