Having the opportunity to interact with colleagues in the workplace is not always possible. So how do you ensure that teams build and maintain healthy relationships with each other when they don’t work in the same location? How do you help two people work better together when they are working remotely? By fostering psychological proximity, so that teams feel close, despite the distance!
Why develop psychological proximity between colleagues?
Building and maintaining healthy relationships in a team when working remotely or when team members are not in regular contact with each other is a major challenge, especially since one of the basic psychological needs underlying human wellbeing is social affiliation.
Because remote work accentuates the feeling of isolation, it is important to take action to increase the feeling of belonging among employees if you want to preserve the wellbeing and increase the performance of your teams.
There are many innovative and refreshing practices that can increase the sense of psychological proximity between team members and thus overcome the disadvantages caused by physical distance. Out of sight, out of mind? Probably not, especially with particularly effective actions to promote psychological proximity when working remotely.

Our success stories
Sometimes daring to do things differently takes us further than we ever imagined. Do what they did.
We had a challenge to address, which was to quickly offer a development program adapted to the reality of our organization for our managers. This course had to allow them to be better equipped to deal with the remote management of their teams in a completely new context. Boostalab offered us an approach, a platform, and content that met our expectations and needs. We greatly appreciated the quality of their facilitation interventions.

All participants are unanimous. Not only do they come out of this experience with a good knowledge base, but they can tangibly apply it in their daily work, which will be beneficial in the medium-long term vs. other more theoretical training courses that come and go.
