10 Resources for Managers of Remote Teams
The percentage of full-time employees working from home because of COVID-19 closures increased from 33% to 61% in just a few weeks, according to Gallup polls. The sudden shift to remote work has been a significant adjustment, and not just for employees.
CEOs, senior leaders, managers, and team leads are facing new stresses and increasingly complex challenges on top of the uncertainty and anxiety caused by the pandemic. Leaders are being called upon to remain calm and commanding while also displaying vulnerability and empathy, communicating a clear plan in a rapidly changing environment, and looking out for the well-being of employees who they cannot physically interact with.
In addition to our previous blogs on adapting to working from home and navigating the psychological impacts of remote work as well as the new Working Remotely training suite we are currently providing for free, we scoured the web to assemble the best guidance and resources to support leaders during this unprecedented mass experiment in remote work.
Special sections with thoughtful articles and resources about remote leadership and navigating the “new normal.”

Now more than ever, leaders and managers are required to remain resilient and adaptable to support newly remote workforces while managing their mental health and the challenges of working from home. At the same time, leaders need their own support and resources to do their job in unconventional situations. The team here at Syntrio wants you to know that you’re not alone. Over the past weeks, Syntrio added several new microlearning courses focused on working remotely and managing remote employees. Please contact us to discuss how we can help!
