Remote Management

How do I win friends and influence people when I don't know what they look like? My new job requires me to manage client projects remotely. Most of my time with clients is spent either in conference calls, one-on-one phone calls, or communicating through email and Basecamp. I usually have no idea what these people look like. As a project manager I need to keep the client moving towards the finish line by making decisions quickly and getting things done on time. My question is two fold: 1) How do I motivate and influence a team that works for another organization?, and 2) How do I best do this being remote? I am looking for techniques and tools that will help me be an effective, remote, 3rd party project manager. If it matters I work for a Software as a Service company. My clients are implementing our software on their websites. The client may or may not have a dedicated project manager. Help me drive things forward!

Which works better, the carrot or the stick?

GroupCommitmentFilter: I've been trying to put together a large group of people to participate in an artistic performance-based hobby that they all claim to enjoy. I'm the group leader, and it feels like I'm herding cats when it comes to getting people to commit to attending training sessions so that our shows will be of a high quality. I'm constantly altering my plans so that the least experienced people aren't left behind. How can I get people to step up their game and commit to the group without alienating them? [more inside]

Can you recommend a forum where management strategy can be discussed? For example if I wanted to bounce ideas around appropriate project metrics?

Can you recommend a online forum where management strategy can be discussed? For example if I wanted to bounce ideas around appropriate project metrics? I know there are specific PM forums but I am wondering if there is a forum where managers sort of discuss their ideas etc. Something more general than a dedicated PM forum since my questions / discussions wont just relate to project management

Advice for new manager

Hello...I'm thinking of applying for a manager position but hesitate because not sure I'm ready or that my skin is thick enough. Anyway, I'm interested in finding resources for new managers that might help me determine whether I am willing to take on this new challenge now. I saw a similar thread but it was back in 2007 so I am wondering if there have been any recent resources in particular that you would recommend.

How much time do you spend budgeting and tracking spending?

How much time do you spend each week or month budgeting, tracking spending, thinking about your money, paying bills, etc.? These are tasks that I hate, and I , therefore, do not dedicate enough time to do them. Right now money comes in (paychecks are automatically deposited into my checking and savings accounts) and money goes out (bills are paid automatically by my banks and I spend cash and use my debit card). However, I'm not tracking everything I spend (I know that I should be), and I'm not budgeting for the future. I have a (very) small savings, but basically live paycheck to paycheck. I know that tracking spending and budgeting are the way out of this trap, but I'm loathe to get started (again--I've tried before), because of how much time I anticipate it will take. If you are tracking spending and budgeting on a regular (weekly?) basis, how much time does this activity take in order to have a clear picture of your finances and adequately plan for the future? Thanks in advance for your replies.
