2. Virtual management.
Two dimensions of the relationship:
- formal and informal.
Two temptations:
- total delegation or total directive styles. Or the third way?
Taking the distance into account and making it a real management project, but what does that change:
- autonomous, but not independent collaborators,
- avoiding distance and loss of meaning for the project,
- get the collaborator to participate in group projects,
- organising vitual meetings,
- following collaborators and assessing them, setting up efficient communication policies,
- developing collaborators' skills.
3. Participative management style:
Three types of participative management styles: project, transverse, networking.
Risks and advantages of participative management for the manager and the collaborator.
Setting up a participative style of management:
- management versus service style,
- getting the team or the network to influence:
- giving roles and responsibilities,
- following collaborators work,
- communicating and checking properly, developing competence.
Participative management style:
- exerting influence.
