Here are some of the expectations I highlighted in an earlier Teams365 blog post:
This week’s Team Building Tip is a “Remote Work Enabler”. Throughout the upcoming weeks I’ll be including a number of special items to keep in mind to help your remote team THRIVE, not just SURVIVE!
The first remote work enabler I wanted to point to was that of expectation. In a remote team, we may be part of multiple matrix relationships, which makes it even more important for us to be clear on our expectations about HOW THINGS ARE DONE.
Teams can benefit from taking time to create a WAYS OF WORKING, or Team Agreements about how they will operate together.
What are the team expectations around?:
· Showing up for meetings
· Focus at meetings
· Being prepared
· Being punctual
· Quality of work
· Surfacing issues
· Addressing difficult conversations
· How you interact with each other
· Share information
· Connect with others outside of the organization
· Participate in ongoing learning
Each one of these could spark a conversation around multiple factors.
When expectations are not clear we run the risk of doing things differently, having varied output, and most importantly, creating assumptions that might not be founded. These can have the most detrimental impact in the long run.
As a team, what do expectations do you want to make clear?
Enjoy your conversation!
