The way we work is changing and it’s changing rapidly. The advancement of technology has already opened the gateway for many organisations and individuals to the world of remote work during the past decade. Today, the current COVID-19 pandemic is forcing the remaining – even the most traditional – ones to follow the same path, causing long-lasting changes in our lifestyles and economies. According to Bloomberg, Coronavirus will re-shape how we shop, travel and work for years.
As experiencing this phenomenon in Sri Lanka, feeling the direct impact it has on our coworking community, founder friends and many traditional corporate environments, we felt the need to share some positive advice in the midst of the chaos. We did our research to gather the best practices from trusted sources and put a 12-step guideline together on how to lead your team remotely. The information below has been extracted from INC Magazine, Bloomberg Opinion, HubSpot and Harvard Business Review. This post has been curated for people who can afford to work remotely but we understand there are many who can’t fulfill all or any of the points below and we are deeply empathising with those who don’t have such a clear choice.
We hope this piece of information helped and if you also have some killer insights we haven’t included, don’t hold it back. Take care and keep going!
