Remote work can be a great way to improve employee moral and productivity – if it’s approached the right way. Fortunately, many in-person leadership techniques still work for remote work when they are matched with remote-specific techniques. This means that managers won’t have to relearn all their skills, just add a few small tweaks to be successful.
I will work with your team to provide the resources and training they need to make your implementation work optimally for your company. Applying general best practices as well as developing tailored solutions unique to your team’s needs will make your remote or hybrid work arrangements far more effective.
As an Industrial and Organizational Psychology practitioner I help businesses apply science-based approaches to solve common business challenges. Though remote work has become more common in recent years, work psychologists have been studying it for a long time, and have developed techniques and frameworks that can make it a very successful approach for a wide variety of businesses. I’ll help you choose which methods will work best for your employees and develop a plan to roll out the plan to ensure improved results.
