Tip 1: Communication – maintain constant communication with your employee.
FYI – this comes from one of my worst communicating employees (he’s still with me today)
Tip 2: Correct them nicely when they make mistakes
Tip 3: Training – They really value training. A lot.
Tip 4: Video/audio instructions
Tip 5: Be patient with them. It takes time.
Tip 5a: Pay regardless of results.
Tip 6: Provide feedback. Comments.
You’ll notice the theme. Communicate with them. Train them. Talk with them.
