Remote Work: Communication ExcellenceIf you are working with a distributed team across the globe, if any given team member does not maintain effective and tight communication, then that team member is likely not going to work out so well for your team and business. Communication is the core of how we move things forward and get things done, especially when your business is spread out throughout the world. If you try to run a business with a team and never communicated with each other, things are likely not going to get done, everyone will be working towards different goals and the direction of the business will be completely disjointed. Of course, this is extreme, however, even just one person who is not easily within reach during working hours can throw a huge wrench into your machine, aka your business. We are so obsessed with having the best tools to help us communicate these days, so not only do you need the right tools but also the means to overcome challenges of being part of a distributed team.
- Time zone differences
- It takes longer for things to get done
- Sometimes it's easier to communicate when the person is right next to you
