REMOTE STRATEGIES/TOOLS: 1. Use Remote Energizers To maintain engagement and focus during remote meetings, especially when discussing complex topics, incorporate energizers. Adapting these activities for remote settings is crucial for keeping participants attentive. 2. Create a Team Remote Working Charter Guide your team in developing a remote working charter that outlines the expected guidelines and behaviors for those working remotely. Encourage team members to reflect on their remote work experiences and use that knowledge to establish a shared charter for the group or organization. 3. Implement Remote Meeting Check-Ins/Check-Outs Encourage group members to be present, seen, and heard by checking in and out during remote meetings. Check-ins promote presence, focus, and group commitment, while check-outs emphasize reflection and closure. This practice helps maintain connection and empathy within remote teams. 4. Conduct Remote Daily Check-Ins Regularly check in with your team or group to emphasize presence, focus, and group commitment. This method fosters connection, empathy, and trust among remote team members, even when larger teams or communities don't frequently interact.
