As teams continue to work across regions, across offices, and from home, it is more important than ever that your team feels included and rewarded for their efforts. Many managers look at dispersed teams as a supervision problem. The reality is that there is unlikely any need for increased supervision when your employees feel included and are aligned with the goals of the organization.
Over the past few months, our users have consistently requested one thing, more participation. Participation for remote teams is far more challenging than office-based teams. Why? Because getting people to participate from home is like herding cats. In the office, you have the ability to go from cubicle to cubicle recruiting participants for any given activity or team building event. When working from home there is a balance between work and other responsibilities. Workdays are not necessarily set up in 8-hour blocks.

If you do not consider the impact of your communication as a leader your bad habits will trickle through the organization without any way of identifying or fixing the problem.

We have built a relevant team member profile that includes insights into who they are as a professional, as a team member and as a human being. Team member profiles highlight endorsements from actual team members who work together on a daily basis.
