VISION 2020 CURRENT AGENDA: "Living the Science: Letting creativity flow"

Let us make the most of our time; our goal is to keep our focus on the things that matter and guided by the highest priority. I may not be able to give you a daily Agenda, but we must be ready for anything that comes. We will not stress out by the amount of work to be done but the quality of decisions we make, our programs, our services and all of the things that we are. We maintain a "method in our madness". We are not a typical 9-5 operation. We own this enterprise, we have a Mission. We are always OPEN. 

 

Coronavirus & The Nursing Office: Preparing for a Virtual Work Setting

Strategies make it easier to promote productivity in a stressful environment:

Instill a sense of purpose

Our team has always been mission-driven and goal oriented that enables our success.

Open lines of communication

Modern technology offers various ways to keep in touch. We will figure out and design our virtual office which will work best for us on a continuous around the clock ability to come in and leave open communication.

Provide individual attention

Help the team to stay on task and feel more confident about their performance by offering regular feedback through alternative means, phones, text messages, emails.

(Tools such as BasecampGoogle HangoutsSlack and Zoom allow virtual workers to ask questions and talk casually in a way similar to tapping someone on the shoulder in the office.) MDS 3/16/2020

 

To manage your remote staff more effectively, consider the following suggestions:

1. Clearly define expected results. Specific expectations regarding deliverables, deadlines, and collaboration must be clearly communicated.  With fewer opportunities for regular communication, people may inadvertently take actions which were not what you had in mind.  And unless specifically directed to do so, they may neglect to appropriately involve remote coworkers.

2. Communicate, communicate, communicate. We naturally pay more attention to people in our immediate vicinity, so managers must make a special effort to stay in touch with remote team members. Send regular update emails and solicit questions from employees.  Set aside specific times for one-on-one sessions and keep a list of topics to discuss.  Encourage your team to do the same.

3. Invest time in meeting new hires. Try to have an in-person meeting with new employees, even if it requires a lengthy trip.  A single face-to-face discussion can make a huge difference in helping the employee feel more connected.  If circumstances make traveling impossible, schedule time for online get-acquainted conversations. 

4. Know when to talk instead of write. One of the greatest potential pitfalls for virtual relationships is the overuse of written communication. Email is a terrific tool, but it can also create misunderstandings and conflicts.  If a topic is sensitive, complicated, or potentially contentious, have an in-person discussion or pick up the phone.

5. Learn to manage virtual meetings. Provide your team with appropriate online meeting tools and ensure that everyone can use them effectively – and be sure to master them yourself!  If some employees are physically with you during these discussions, be sure that remote team members have equal opportunities to participate.

6. Do not procrastinate. For remote employees, waiting for their manager to provide information or make a decision can be extremely frustrating. Since they aren't going to run into you in the hall, their only choice is to wait it out or send nagging emails, which they may be reluctant to do.  So be sure to follow through and follow up!

7. Understand cultural differences. If you are managing people from different countries, take time to learn about work expectations and practices in their culture. These patterns may differ from your own in unexpected ways, which could lead to serious misunderstandings, especially when you are in different locations.

8. Stay on your boss's radar. Remember the old saying "out of sight, out of mind”?  If you are working remotely yourself, take the initiative to stay in touch with your manager by scheduling progress updates and feedback sessions. Otherwise, you may miss out on important information needed by your team. 

9. Make smart hiring decisions. If telecommuting is a permanent job requirement, remember that not everyone is suited for remote work. Studies have found that telecommuting success requires the following traits: excellent communication skills, good time management, comfort with autonomy, and responsiveness to direction. So include those abilities in your interview plan and hire accordingly.
