How to Manage
a Business Remotely
The modern way of working is to work
from a home office, connected over
the internet.
It saves time,
It saves time, money
It saves time, money, and
the environment
is great if you work on your own...
Plus you can sit around in your pants if
that’s the way you like to work. Which
Not so good if you’re in a team.
In fact managing a team when you’re in
different places can be really tricky.
Have a
schedule
Collaborate Make Friends
Here are four ways I try to make my team
work together effectively despite being scattered
across two continents.
Have a
schedule
Collaborate Make Friends
This is particularly important if you’re
working across time zones.

.
It’s also really important to be clear on when work or
feedback is required

Because it’s much harder to chase
something up when someone isn’t
And even worse if they’ve finished work
for the week and gone to the pub whilst
you have 5 more hours to go and really
need something from them.
Have a
schedule
Collaborate Make Friends
It’s difficult to convey nuances of
Talking is much more effective,
and lets you do the following
points more successfully...
Have a
schedule
Collaborate Make Friends
Have working sessions.
When you sit in an office you can always
ask for someone’s opinion,
What do you
think about
this?
But the barrier to that is much higher if you
have to call them up.
Use something like Skype to work on a
project together.
Often two heads are better than one so use a tool to
work on a project at the same time and share ideas.
Have a
schedule
Collaborate Make Friends
Don’t just talk about work, it will take
ages to get to know your colleagues.
How’s
work?
Worky...
When a project is tough you need
to put in extra hours, or just need
someone to bail you out.
It’s much easier on both sides if
you know and like your colleagues.
And tell your colleagues about something interesting you
learned that day, it usually promotes a good discussion.
I keep terrapins
I can do a headstand for
three minutes
And tell your colleagues about something interesting you
learned that day, it usually promotes a good discussion.
Did you know you could
do this in PowerPoint?
So if there’s an ocean, or just a couple of cities between you
and your colleagues, it’s no excuse for not having a great
team that works together really well.
Having a team that enjoys working together is
much easier to manage.
Go forth and work in pants!
(Just no webcams please)
