¿Doing the transition to full remote? These are the main points you need to consider to not die trying it
The current COVID-19 situation has changed the world in many aspects, being the way we work one of the most impacted. We need to adapt and learn how to build, grow and manage multidisciplinary remote teams in order to succeed. Moving fast, adapting to new technologies and improving our communication skills are key now more than ever.
There are several aspects we need to have in mind in order to succeed on working remotely with our team, no matter if it is a development or marketing team, these advices apply to all. But first, we should define what remote work is: working remotely means basically out of the office, a different location than the one provided by your company, usually your home. This said, we can go beyond: members of the team could be in the same city or not, on a different state, country or even continent. The team could be working on the same or in a different time zone, be an in-house employee or a contractor. Team could also be cultural diverse. Things can get complicated if we have all these differences involved while working. So keep in mind the following points before starting remotely.
Definitely DON'T do the following points, your team will really appreciate it, also you won't be seen as a crazy micromanager out of control.
