#8: Mistakes managing a remote team with Kirk Fisher
< 28:33 >
Based on the findings of a recent Gallup global meta-analysis of 62,965 business units and teams and published in the organizational science journal, Human Performance, May 2020, Nina Sunday interviews Australian Leadership expert, Kirk Fisher.
This global study identifies five attributes that differentiate resilient business unit cultures from others:
1. Clear expectations.
2. Right materials and equipment.
3. Opportunities for employees to do what they do best.
4. Connection to the mission or purpose of the organization.
5. Coworkers committed to quality work.
Talking points include:
- COVID as an opportunity to reinvent what we do and how we do it
- Communication, connection, feedback. If you’ve been doing it a little bit; now you need to do it a lot!
- Importance of one-on-one meetings (conversations).
- Meetings – don’t mix remote and in-person attendees. If one is remote, make everyone remote.
- How does a manager develop their EQ?
- What is the silver lining in COVID?
- Where do you find hope?
