Book Recommendation: Working Remotely: Secrets to Success for Employees on Distributed Teams by Theresa Douglas 6 Ways to maximize engagement with your team:
Have daily standup meetings early in the morning to get your team on the same page.
Trust that your team is working.
Ask for updates on a regular basis in 1:1 conversations
Keep meetings small, between 5 and 6 people.
Always have an agenda for the meeting and include everyone.
Encourage everyone on your team an opportunity to participate.
“One of the tactics that I've been trying to stick to is not having meetings with too many people. So if you keep the group smaller, say, under five or under six, you can basically see what's going on. And it's easier to have a conversation with all of those people. But once it gets over six, it actually gets quite tricky.” -Lillian Haase Find Lillian Haase | Search Metrics Lillian and Natalie first met at a Wonder Women Dinner through Yao Huang.
