Remote Team

What is a Remote Team?

A Remote Team is any team regularly operating in different places.  Even if they go to an office, but are spread between locations, they are remote.

Key components of Remote Teams are collaboration, defining success and failure, and navigating a conflict resolution strategy when we hit bumps in the road.

An example would be a team of people all working from home, a team with some in the office and some at home, a team of people always on the road!

What Causes Employee Burnout?

Burnout is not caused by regular stress. All jobs come with some stress that will wax and wane through normal cycles. Burnout is a result of unrealistic deadlines and uneven workload distribution. It happens when the expectations for what someone is supposed to achieve are beyond what they are capable of. 

Specifically, burnout is caused by:

  • Unrealistic job and goal expectations
  • Unclear job and goal expectations (poor communication)
  • No control over workload
  • Unrealistic time expectations
  • Long hours
  • High-pressure environments
  • Inefficient processes and workflows
  • Little to no recognition of effort and achievement
