Trust is one of the biggest challenges to working remotely. Do you trust that your people are working hard and smart or do you try to micromanage them? Does your boss leave you alone enough to get your work done but not so much that you suspect she forgets you exist? You work hard, but will the rest of the team have your back and meet their commitments?
Trusting the people your work with (and for) has never been easy. When you work remotely it’s even tougher. It can, however, be done…managers can create a culture of trust by building what he calls “the Eight Pillars of Trust”.
