Key Ideas

Building strong teams

When building a strong team, managers should take into account several aspects, such as providing a clear plan about the objectives and how to reach them or establishing a so-called 'shared scoreboard' which everyone in the team can use to evaluate their success. 

The manager can often find himself or herself repeating several times the rules, in order to ensure the team's consistency- and that is alright, as it is necessary to get people used to belonging to the team.

Rules enable a better organization

Once you have set your mind on building a strong team, you should find a way to create a set of rules that is specific only to your team, what can be then called the team culture. Make sure team members understand and obey the chosen rules.

Respect your team

Respect is essential within a community. The same applies to teams: as a manager, you should make sure your team members feel respected and confident enough to want to do their best when working. 

Furthermore, as a leader, it is your duty to make everybody understand and apply the same politics within your team.

Encourage productive conversations

Whenever something is going wrong inside your team, make sure to let people know about it, as allowing issues to gather up can only have a negative effect. However, you might want to pay attention to the way your message is being delivered, in order to not make things worse. 

Overall, speaking your mind by any communication means is extremely important, as long as you keep an eye on the way the message is being delivered.

Relying On Text The Right Way

Voice and video calls can help you feel more in touch with your team and avoid the issues of asynchronous communication like time lags or misunderstandings.

However, you'll likely spend a lot of your day communicating via text as it’s a good way to interact without interrupting their work. So you need to be able to get your point across clearly and simply, show empathy and understanding, and be efficient to avoid wasted time.

Staying Up To Date

Remote workers can feel overwhelmed by the amount of text they have to process. So finding ways to keep on top of what's going on is imperative for communicating efficiently with others.

Create archive lists and CC irrelevant emails to them, so you can save and share them without flooding non-involved people.
