Listen to the Episode Below:
A team that works like a well-oiled machine is a key element to doubling the value of your business. But how do you keep a tight rein with today's distributed workforce? And do "tight reins" work with more Millenials entering the landscape?
On this week's episode, Sophie Wade, a Future of Work authority, points out the old ways of "being boss" that no longer work, and how to bring in fresh thinking around frameworks and systems to maintain a cohesive team.
How You Get the Most from a Distributed Workforce…
Give work assignments meaning and context. Today's workforce (Millennials especially) want their labors to mean more than just hours on a timesheet. Share your company's long-term goals and impact.
You’re more likely to get a more receptive team and higher quality work when you let people work on their own schedules. Not everyone produces at their best from 9 to 5. Take advantage of communication tools like Slack and Trello to keep up with your team.
