Title How Can Leaders Effectively Manage Anxious, Distracted And Stressed Remote Teams? Media name/outlet Forbes Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 19/03/20 Description It’s vital that leaders continue to get eyeball-to-eyeball contact with all of their followers, according to Sir Cary Cooper CBE, professor of organizational psychology at Alliance Manchester Business School in the U.K.
“It’s very easy for managers to simply email or give a quick phone call to staff to see how they are getting on, but this only tells half the story,” he explains. “The non-verbal communication is just as important. Through non-verbal communication you can see team members’ emotions, how they are coping, whether they feel isolated and whether they are understanding and dealing with their workload.”
Cooper argues that it’s important for leaders to keep a strong human connection with their teams during these trying times. “Video calls are the best way to keep face-to-face contact, ensure morale is still high and stress to your employees how much you value them.”
