Adjusting to disruptive change is never easy. That said, the COVD-19 crisis introduces novel challenges that no business could have been fully prepared to meet. Although we function as a team, no two individuals have the exact same response to any given situation.
“One of the biggest challenges to leading a remote team is adjusting to a new rhythm of life outside the office,” Monica explains. “I’ve had some employees thrive with minimal supervision, while others have needed extra support.”
Adapting to the individual needs of employees and their families isn’t easy. However, employers need to embrace this challenge if they hope to thrive in the post-COVID environment.
“It’s important for leaders to take the time and learn the individual preferences of team members…During this uncertain and constantly fluctuating situation, you will need to be flexible in the way you communicate and convey information, as well as how you measure employee work performance.”
