Problematic Remote Employees - MyStartupLand

Startup founders and team leaders know all too well the frustrations of managing remote teams. Even superstar hires can become confoundingly difficult in a remote work environment.

Why is that? The reasons could be many.

For one thing, working at home or from a cafe can be distracting for people who’ve never done it before. People sometimes have to learn a whole new approach to discipline and productivity — and this comes with a learning curve.

On the flipside, the employee might be responding to a disconnect he or she feels with the company. Perhaps you’ve failed to build enough rapport to get the chemistry right. Perhaps you haven’t set expectations for a healthy on/off balance, and your employee is trying to look conspicuously available at all times.
