Remote working is here to stay, as organisations expand globally, as we need people to work more flexibly around the customer's needs, and as workplace cultures and expectations change. When a manager and their team are in the same office, the manager benefits from convenience - they can see who is there, listen to the conversations, answer questions, give guidance and serve as a reference point for the team. To master remote management, we must first understand what makes the best managers, and then apply that to overcome the challenges of managing a distributed, remote team. All of the same principles apply, and there are some new risks to overcome, and some new opportunities for the organisation to embrace.
