Remote work is a new avenue for many businesses. And a lot of them found themselves in the situation overnight where essentially their employees had to set up home offices rather quickly. These changes have been a shock to employees, to the organizations they work for, and to their supervisors and leaders. Among the many challenges that has surfaced in this new way of working, is micromanaging. This greatly affects productivity, innovation, and morale. We’re going to look at the negative effects of micromanaging, including its damage to trust. We’re going to talk about why micromanaging is unnecessary. And we’re going to explore ways that leaders can be more engaging with their employees and their teams without micromanaging.
Managing remote workers and the work has become a new challenge for many organizations. With little time to prepare for the sudden change in the work environment, business, operations and employee processes altered. As we move forward and companies review how they will operate both externally and internally, remote work will remain the norm for many. In today’s episode, we’re going to focus on managing the work with two types of employees: self-disciplined and disorganized. What can leaders and organizations do to manage the remote work with their remote workers? And why does micro-managing lead to burnout?
To effectively lead teams, leaders need to display compassion and empathy. They also need to be forward thinkers. But none of this is possible without being a good listener. What does being a good listener entail? And why does listening contribute to good leadership?
Leaders are the pillars of the organizations they represent. Employees look to them to lead them through challenging times as well as the quieter, creative times. If leaders are not present, employees become lost without direction. To lead a thriving business and teams, leaders need to have a consistent, visible, physical presence to encourage and inspire others.
