Managing remote teams in our digital era
Today we enjoy seemingly unlimited communications opportunities. There’s an app for almost anything, Google knows it all, and we don’t lack a vast variety of gadgets that are supposed to ease communication. And yet there are doubts emerging about whether the wealth of communications at our fingertips has been achieved at the cost of some of our more human skills – such as people management.
Has our digital era really improved the overall quality of management? The pace has quickened, the audience has widened, demands for actions have increased, but, in this reactive whirlwind, do we find the time to think and really communicate? And if you add a new element to it – working remotely – the equation becomes even more challenging to solve.
