What Leadership Skills Are Needed for a Remote Workforce?

People often seek out a life coach because they want to be a more effective leader. Through private coaching, we can help determine what their strengths and weaknesses are so that they can make the most of their strengths and develop strategies that will help them compensate for their weaknesses.  

There are some traits that all good leaders share, regardless of the situation. Then there are the leadership skills that can help you take control of a room or make a positive impression. But in the age of Covid-19, when so many people are working remotely, some surprising leadership skills are now in demand. 

Leading a Remote Team

To say things are changing in the workplace is a bit of an understatement at this point. Earlier this year, everyone was scrambling to try to find a way to keep people working. Essential workers kept showing up to take care of all of us, but lots of people began working from home in an effort to stay safe and slow the spread of Covid-19. 

This seed of professional vexation has borne fruit, with new data showing that the confidence, intelligence and extroversion that have long propelled ambitious workers into the executive suite are not enough online, because they simply don’t translate into virtual leadership. Instead, workers who are organised, dependable and productive take the reins of virtual teams. Finally, doers lead the pack – at least remotely.

The BBC recently reported on new data that reveal that in-person leaders may not be the best virtual ones. “Confidence, intelligence and extroversion that have long propelled ambitious workers into the executive suite are not enough online, because they simply don’t translate into virtual leadership. Instead, workers who are organised, dependable and productive take the reins of virtual teams. Finally, doers lead the pack – at least remotely.”

So, if you are a doer, this could be your time to shine. Don’t be afraid to step up and show them what you’ve got!
