Nanci was asked by Findcourses.com “How do you lead a remote team?” Her answer was insightful and connected:
Everywhere you turn people are talking about ‘social distancing’ when it really needs to be labeled as ‘physical distancing.’
Now more than ever with so many of us working remotely we need to be socially connected! As leaders, you need to set up short virtual one-on-one meetings and total team meetings using your organization’s technology and webcams.
The value of this is that you get to hear others’ voices, see their faces and read their body language which is 93% of the communication experience. Only 7% of our communication is the words we speak.”
