The trend towards remote and home working was already apparent before Covid-19 made it a necessity. As a return to normal edges closer, many companies and their workers are trying to weigh up the pros and cons of returning to the office or sticking with current arrangements. Many of those whose staff are relatively local are leaning towards a hybrid model with, say, 2 days per week in the office and the remainder spent working from home. In short, it appears that for most, remote boards and teams are here to stay in some form or another. This excellent, short article from Gallup notes how to boost productivity in such circumstances: http://bit.ly/AspireMCL044
Trust is always foundational for high-performance boards and teams, yet most leaders are tempted to adopt an overly command and control based style when crises arise. It is certainly necessary to provide clear direction at times, but for remote working to yield the best results, building trust to boost innovation, initiative and engagement, is essential.
