How to Communicate Remotely

Remote communication is here to stay making it harder to keep in touch and explain the details. Here are 6 tips to help!

Introduction

Communicating remotely is here to stay. Whether you work at home, take Fridays off, travel for business or manage a remote team, we all have to communicate remotely at some point in our professional lives, not just during the current COVID-19 outbreak. It makes keeping in touch and explaining details just more difficult, so here are 6 tips to improve communication between remote teams to ensure that, although we are apart, we can still work together effectively. 

  • Step n°1 |

    Watch your words

    You can’t hear your co-workers’ tone of voice or see their facial expressions to know you have said something they don’t like or agree with. Internationally, words have different connotations. Know who you are communicating with and re-read your emails to insure they are giving the right impression. Even adding an emoji can help lighten the tone. Don’t over communicate.

    Set Expectations

     If you are leading a remote team, let them know what you expect — when they should be online, how they should communicate (email, messaging, phone, video conferencing), are different time zones involved etc. Be as specific as possible. When you are part of a team, ask for specifics if they haven’t been provided.
