The word of a virtual or remote team leader can become all consuming, and it is important to consider how you create boundaries to ensure work-life balance (see post on balance). Without some of these boundaries it ould be very easy to work 24/7 and sometimes you are on call 24/7, especially when your team is spanning time zones. Being able to set clear times for R an R (Rest and renewal) is critical to high performance success.
The topic of resilience has also garnered more attention in recent years. The ability to not only excel, but also bring things back on course is key when things get off the rails.
Questions to consider:
What does resilience mean?
When have you had to recently demonstrate resilience?
What helped you?
What lessons learned can you carry forward into other areas/?
As a virtual and remote team leader relationships are key to results. The skills of influence are even more important when our team members are located miles away from where we work. Today, consider some of the key relationships you have in your work. What is the state of each one? Which ones need attention?
