Managers caught between two realities
Managers play a key role in an employee’s sense of commitment, and even more so when an employee is working remotely. They need help and tools to deal with all the complexity, unpredictability, sensitivity, and productivity issues, not to mention their team members’ individual situations.
Here are a few solutions:
Talking about what’s on your mind with a neutral and objective person outside the organization can help reduce stress. If this person asks the right questions or can help you gain clarity on a situation, the rewards are immediate. Check out our flash coaching.
Getting your teams to connect informally through a team-building activity can help cure the blues. Our Leadership & Team Development team designs custom activities.
Our How Are You? survey examines four components (personal adjustment, manager support, team adjustment, and organizational adjustment) and quickly identifies areas for improvement so that you can take the necessary action.
In the current context, our coaching workshops to prioritize, determine realistic actions to be implemented, ensure risk management, and take the necessary corrective measures will help you see more clearly and objectively.
We cannot know how or when things are going to turn around, but we can find ways to cushion the blow and hold on to our employees and show them that they really matter to us.
