Sandy Olson, Speaker and Owner of Pathway to Success, a motivational company reveals some of the most important habits of successful telecommuters and their managers suggesting that those new to telecommuting could benefit from adopting the habits.
Frederick, MD – May 10, 2017 – Sandy Olson, owner and speaker with Pathway to Success, a motivation company, recently published an article titled “Secret Habits of Successful Telecommuters and Their Managers” on her website. Ms. Olson admits the habits may not be so secret, but neither is the fact that telecommuting is growing by leaps and bounds.
Olson writes, “Telecommuting is becoming more the norm than the exception.” She adds, “As more and more work is being done away from the office, the habits of the employees and managers that lead to success are more greatly understood. What follows are 7 habits that the most successful telecommuters engage. Maybe they are not so secret, but neither is the fact that nearly 45% of Americans work from home.” She continues saying, “So, adopting the habits that lead to success could be your secret weapon. I’ve also included 4 habits that managers of telecommuting employees practice to ensure smooth workflow and success among their teams.”
One of the first habits Olson shares is that of having clear expectations. She writes, “All employees need to know what their boss expects, but having clear expectations is even more important for telecommuters.” She elaborates further, “When working remotely, you must specifically define deliverables and deadlines. If your boss fails to establish and clarify expectations you need to initiate that conversation.”
Another habit Olson focuses on is that of developing a reputation for dependability. Olson says, “When colleagues don’t see you on a daily basis, they may feel uneasy about your progress on projects or your ability to meet agreed-upon deadlines.” She advises, “By doing what you say you’re going to do you’ll develop a reputation for dependability. They will respect and trust you and stop worrying. Be sure to give everyone involved a heads-up if a schedule is ever going to slip.”
When it comes to managing remote teams, Olson says, “Be very specific with remote employees about deliverables and deadlines. To manage remotely, you need to clearly define what each person is expected to produce.”
