In this Course we will focus on three fundamental aspects of a strong, productive virtual team:
- Virtual Coordination
- Virtual Collaboration
According the Sloane School of Business at MIT, before the pandemic in early 2020, about 15% of U.S. employees were working from home at least some of the time.1 During the first half of April, 2020, HALF of all U.S. employees were doing ALL of their work remotely.
Many of these employees have found themselves in the situation called, “suddenly remote”.
Suddenly remote team members didn’t consciously decide to work remotely.
Building Effective Strong Virtual Teams
Clearly defining, understanding and appreciating team member roles & responsibilities, and fully utilizing the tools at hand to get results.
How do team members build effective working relationships and strengthen trust when they only interact virtually? It requires intentional effort and specific strategies to appreciate strengths, overcome differences and work well together as a cohesive team.
Maintaining accountability is difficult for teams no matter what the context. In a virtual environment it’s particularly difficult to calibrate expectations, address problems and celebrate success.
