My valuable teammate lost his phone .We all work remotely and trying to find him has been a challenge since I can't make calls and he is poor in responding to slack messages .How do I get his involvement ?
It's so simple, but setting rules of engagement for how teams should communicate with each other is paramount for effective teamwork.
Once you get a hold of your teammate, perhaps enacting rules of engagement for your team will help prevent a lack of engagement down the road. From the "Journal of Education for Business," a study on "The Effects of a Team Charter on Student Team Behaviors" showed that team charters (or explicit goals and ways of working for a team) improved performance, support, and member satisfaction.
Of course, this doesn't help connect with your teammate right now. What might be helpful is setting up a meeting so they can prepare to connect, and using a communication tool that doesn't use mobile service. If your teammate is able to work, then they have a computer, and if they have a computer, then they can access meetings through the internet.
Good luck, @Victor Kenneth , and let us know what happens!
