Join Bob McGannon for an in-depth discussion in this video Discovering remote employees' needs, part of Managing Virtual Teams.

In fact, it's conducted in almost…exactly the same manner.…First, start by getting a sense of what…your employees have and don't have.…This is as easy as asking a series of questions.…To help you with that part,…I've included an exercise file with…a full list of questions to get you going.…A few of those questions are…what is the nearest airport,…and how long would it take you to get there?…What technology do you have?…Desktops, laptops, iPads, a smart phone,…and if so, what type?…
Discover how to build rapport, set mutual expectations, communicate, connect, overcome conflict, get work done, and grow the team. Also included is a look at the top five challenges managers face in leading remote teams and helpful solutions that will get your team on track.
