He offers a few remote-management tips:

    * Teach new providers how the team works, and its goals, expectations and values.
    * You, or your team leaders, should hold a weekly conference call to share new information with representatives.
    * An always-on group chat (on Skype) lets team members share information and ideas on the fly.


    * Establish a structured training process and a probationary hiring period.
    * Use weekly or biweekly training sessions to teach and refresh skills.


    * Share metrics to encourage high performance and audit chats to provide coaching.
