Leading remote employees puts a new slant on the leader’s dilemma: How much to hold on to vs. let go of control? At the root of this dilemma is how to share your authority and work process design so that the job gets done creatively, yet efficiently and with quality. Especially when working with people in different geographies who speak different languages and have different cultures and norms, remote leadership can be a minefield of unintended consequences. It’s more likely that someone will be misunderstood, or that the burden of remote work isn’t shared equally. Not to mention the Zoom fatigue from too many badly designed and poorly facilitated online meetings. This matters because meetings are often a mirror of what is happening in the group or organization as a whole. Social dynamics that show up in meetings are bound to be at work outside of meetings.
Getting more control over the process and productivity of online meetings and the work that happens in between, can go a long way to creating an environment where people are more committed and motivated to collaborate across functions, time and geography. And that takes a huge burden off your shoulders as a leader managing a distributed or hybrid workforce.
