Tips for Building and Leading High-Performing Remote Teams
Startups and SMEs start the business with a team of carefully selected workers to maximize their finances. It’s important to build high-performing teams so each takes charge of achieving specific goals that contribute to business growth.
This is especially true in remote work since their skills and qualities are crucial to working effectively. Here are four tips on how to build a strong culture with a remote team:
1. Hire remote workers who can adapt
To cultivate a stable remote workforce, managers must focus on bringing in people whose core values align with their current employees; however, you shouldn’t put ‘cultural fit’ as your only criterion.
Diversify your team with workers who not only have the qualifications for the job but also unique perspectives and new ideas. Look for those who can adapt to the work environment culture without disrupting workflow.
2. Encourage work-life balance
Health is a top priority for employees when it comes to achieving a good work-life balance. To create a positive culture, look after your team’s well-being, even when they’re working from home.
Promote work-life balance by being open and receptive to how you manage people and delegate tasks. This way, you will build a remote team that works towards achieving shared goals on business development and individual triumphs.
3. Create remote team rituals
Group bonding rituals can strengthen relationships among team members. These habits also positively contribute to how meaningful employees perceive their work. Some practices you can do with your high-performing remote teams are:
- Group chats
- Virtual lunch/coffee breaks
- Online parties or games
- Coworking sessions
- Weekly/monthly team member features
- Five-minute small talks or breakout conversations in meetings
4. Foster a system of learning
Learning entails nurturing creativity and innovation. Give constructive criticisms and bring up behaviors or instances that you liked. Bonuses and other privileges are also great ways to show your appreciation. This can encourage your team to bring about similar performances.
Other ways to encourage learning among remote workers include:
- Training for skills outside someone’s core function
- Allowing open discussions during a meeting for brainstorming
- Changing how leaders and team members interact with each other
