Building Trust Foundations With Your Virtual Assistant
Good RelationshipAcquiring a virtual employee of your choice is exciting. Exciting for you and your business itself thinking that everything will go smoothly moving forward. The meet and greet went well and it seems that you got the right person based on your assessment. Meet and greet, interview and first impression. Are those enough to keep your trust in the long run? Building a relationship can be difficult given the absence of physical presence but what can we do to keep that trust or rather, reinforce it?
- Stay in touch.
- Address issues and concerns.
- Generate cooperation
- Avoid conflict
- Helpful and honest feedback.
ExpertiseExpertise is another factor that determines you as a leader because this is the quality of a leader that people always look up to. Knowing that they have a knowledgeable leader that is well-informed gives them relief that they will always have someone to get in touch with if they find themselves on a dead end. We are all experts in our own domain but what can we do to show our employees that we are the go-to guy when everything seems out of hand?
- Good anticipation on negative possibilities.
- Responsive to problems.
- Sharing your knowledge.
- Helpful and honest feedback
ConsistencyThe more you walk the talk the more you show your people a reason to keep their faith in you which we can say a transcendent level of trust. Giving them a relief that you always got them before they hit the bottom of the pit is more than an assurance to get them going. So be that perfect role model. Consistency can be hard to mold from being just a role model on a virtual standpoint but what could we be missing?
- Honor commitments.
- Follow through on commitments.
- Willing to go above and beyond to get everything done.
- Walk the talk.

I’ll rate Virtudesk 5/5. My experience with Virtudesk was fantastic. I like your follow-ups and consistency is very refreshing and it makes me feel very confident in hiring Virtudesk.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.
One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
