A rerelease of part 1 of our guidance on how to work with a remotely located manager, which addresses problems related to working from home and managing remote employees that you may now be facing because of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

This cast gives our guidance on how to effectively work with your manager when he or she is geographically distant from you.

We have a cast on Manager Tools which is designed to give managers who work with geographically dispersed teams some simple things to do to make achieving results more likely. In this cast, we want to give directs a few simple things to do from their side to assist their manager and themselves in achieving results.

You can look at this issue from two sides. For your boss, taking the actions described in this cast will give him confidence that you are a productive member of the team even though you're not co-located. For you, it means that out of sight IS NOT out of mind. Your chances of recognition, payraises and promotions go down when you're not co-located with your boss. These simple steps go some way to mitigating that fact.
