Making Remote Work: Part I - Building Trust With Remote Staff
·Dana Jones' Software Development Blog·Dana Jones
Your team doesn’t owe you trust simply by virtue of you being their manager.
They owe you respect, as we all owe each other, but trust is something you have
to earn. But to be the most effective leader of a team that you can be, you
absolutely 100% need their trust. You need them to feel comfortable disclosing
risks and problems as early as possible, and they will only do that if they know
you will address those things appropriately.
