Remote work software for managers to:

Define clear team objectives
When you are working remotely it’s even more important to be clear on your objectives. CoachBot helps the team define and agree on objectives - a fundamental of team success
Support remote team members
Checking in with your employees one-on-one becomes paramount when remote. Use CoachBot to develop the agenda together, add Coach approved templates and access SmartTips on specific talking points.
Create new operating habits
A new way of working needs new rules. Guided interactive sessions to help teams define their purpose and clarify expected behaviours for working together, while apart.
Run effective remote meetings
Meetings are more effective when they have an owner who facilitates and team members feel engaged if they’ve had a chance to contribute to the agenda in advance.
Monitor with pulse surveys
Use pulse surveys to understand how people feel. It’s hard to pick up on whether your colleagues are feeling low on energy when you can’t see them face-to-face.
Learn and adapt
Making it easy to reflect regularly on what’s working and what’s not is an important step to learn and adapt to remote working.
Seeing some of our most change resistant people embrace a new way of working is fantastic. It’s helped us grow faster and is having a positive impact on our results. CoachBot has been a critical enabler on this change journey, and is a critical part of how we now work.

Keep things moving

It’s hard for managers to strike the right balance between too much and too little contact with remote employees. CoachBot’s nudges and prompts help the team to stay on track and make sure learnings get embedded without team members feeling like they’re being micromanaged.

Understand how the team are feeling

Track the progress of teams over time and understand how aligned different pockets of the business are with company objectives.

Protect the privacy of individual employees without loosing meaningful data on trends and themes.
One of our major challenges was having everyone aligned and clear on their objectives and how these liked to the company objectives. CoachBot has transformed that with clear team purpose, goals, retrospectives and 1-1’s.

CoachBot is a scalable coaching solution. 12 months of CoachBot is 70% cheaper than a single human facilitated session. We’ve seen a lot more open dialogue, alignment and a shared understanding of our values. We’re rolling CoachBot out to the wider business as a result.

Our philosophy on making remote work... work

Going remote may include a change in the tools we use to get work done. But a change in tools requires a change in culture. Going remote is 20% tools, 80% culture. Now is the time to design the culture of how you manage remote teams - and then get a tool to support that culture rather than the other way round.

The good news is that there is a science to remote work and high performance is not an accident. You might be feeling that your organisation is suffering because you cannot be together, but there is much research to show that distributed teams can be as effective if not more effective than office based teams. We like to break the principles of effective remote work into three stages:

Get Set

When you are working remotely it’s even more important to be clear on your objectives. But it’s also important to have a clear process for communicating and discussing these objectives. In remote teams there’s a correlation between how much you communicate, the quality of your relationships and the performance of the team. In fact it accounts for 30-40% of team performance. Our research shows that regular team meetings and 1-1s’ between all members of a team significantly boost performance.

Get Safe

Rules consciously or unconsciously define collective behaviour. High performing teams always consciously define their behaviour. Agreeing shared behavioural norms is one way to lay the foundation for psychological safety. As employees transition to remote working they consciously or unconsciously create new rules for how they operate as a remote team - one of the best things managers can do is to make this an intentional exercise. CoachBot’s interactive behaviours session guides managers through this process.

Get Strong

Reflection, where a team considers what has and hasn’t worked, and whether they have or haven’t worked together according to their own rules, is linked to outcomes directly. Regular team reflection has been found to significantly impact effectiveness and innovation, two of the most sought after qualities of high performing teams. In some cases increasing performance over non-reflecting teams by 25%.

Remote work requires a different and more active style of leadership in order to get the best out of your workforce. It’s hard for HR to make this happen but managers are perfectly placed. CoachBot is the only platform designed to actively support managers in developing the processes and skills to make remote working effective.
