Challenges and solutions to managing a remote sales team

Give your team the tools and the freedom to meet and exceed their targets.

Of course, there can be some challenges because remote working is not the norm, but your team knows what needs to get done and how to do it.

Let's get into it:

4 difficulties you may face when managing a remote working team

Tracking work and productivity of the team

You don’t have the luxury of walking over to your colleague’s desk to ask how they’re doing with the latest report or new client contract.

Scheduling days
Your days are likely filled with conference calls both video and audio and it can be a challenge organising your days to match other colleagues calendars.

Building trust with your team
It can be easy to want to micro-manage projects and how your team is spending their time during working, especially when the team is working remotely and you have limited access to them in person.

Lack of distribution of information

Not everyone is used to sharing the information that they have when they’re away from the office water cooler and not everyone appreciates waiting for the information to be shared with them.
