2. Assess how you currently delegate and distribute tasks
How do you usually decide who does what? Are current goals and tasks discussed in a meeting room with the entire team? Or maybe they are talked about between key decision makers and then allocated to different workers? If that's your current approach to task distribution, there is some work to be done because it's not going to fly with remote teams.
To successfully distribute tasks among your remote team members, start by setting up your accounts in ClickUp
, Monday or whatever else works best for you. Once they are up and running, make sure your team members know how to use them and are fully familiar with their functionality.

Over-communicating about task allocation in remote teams is the right level of communicating.

is so that they are not bossed around about their schedules, given more flexibility and voice. Talk to your remote workers about how to best allocate tasks in a way that allows your business to achieve the desired goals and your remote team to keep the flexibility they need.
