One of the things my manager does is to bring our entire group
together to touch base on what everyone is doing, where they are
in the process, what help they need, etc. I am sure it provides a
way for him to get a good understanding of what we are all doing in
a fairly non-threatening environment. It also provides a way for the
rest of us to see what everyone else in the group is doing, how one
individual's work affects another's, etc. (We are a small "group" --
only 5 of us including the manager, and I'm the only writer...)

I admit that I tend to get a little touchy if he comes into my office
and starts questioning me about my work. I try to recognize that
fact and not allow myself to become defensive. However, I think
that approach immediately makes a person defensive. Obviously, I
have done something wrong (or at least he *thinks* I've done
something wrong) if he's here asking questions.

This might not work for you since one of your employees is off-site,
but it seems to work for us...
