LESSON NOTES
the key is to adapt as much as possible from the more familiar, co-located environment. Quite simply: be available. Treat people who are distant as if they are local.

This means making it a priority for yourself.

The biggest lesson of leading and managing remote teams is that you need to allocate a larger proportion of your time to your team.

Four Development Priorities
My top development priorities are:
1. Allocating work that stretches people beyond their experience, either in depth, complexity, or in new directions.
2. Periodic reviews and good quality feedback
3. Coaching and Mentoring
4. Being prepared to tackle tough issues with integrity. Be open and honest, but do so in a way that is respectful of each individual’s cultural expectations.

RECOMMENDED EXERCISE
1. How well are you doing at developing your remote team and the individuals within your team? Be brutally honest with yourself. (2 MC CPD Points)
2. What are your first, second, and third priorities for improving your work in developing of your team and people? (3 MC CPD Points)
3. Create a plan for the next three months (3 MC CPD Points)
4. Carry out your plan, and monitor your progress at 1, 2, and 3 months, making adjustments as you go, if you need to (6 MC CPD Points)
