Managing a team is never easy even when they are all sitting right in front of you. But the challenges faced by anyone building a team are only exacerbated when that team is spread across different offices.

You can’t just gather everyone around spontaneously to share an update; the team in one office may be celebrating a win while the rest of the team is sleeping; having a difficult conversation with a team member over Skype is never going to be the same as taking them out for a coffee and sitting across the table from them; and maintaining team morale across multiple offices can often feel like an insurmountable task.

I’m tipping that anyone responsible for managing remote teams can relate to at least one or two of these scenarios.

Many of us now work on a regular basis with colleagues dispersed across different buildings, cities, countries and even continents, however, managing a team that’s spread out in this way can present huge challenges, even for the most experienced bosses.

A few months ago I posted an article on LinkedIn about our own experience building a globally distributed team at RecruitLoop and our friends at Villanova University School of Business Online have created this terrific visual guide revealing how easy it is to successfully manage a team of remote workers by implementing certain best practices.

Feel free to share some of your own experiences either as a remote employee or as a manager of remote teams.
