Building Key Virtual Teamwork Skills

Most organizations rely on virtual teams to perform much of their critical work. Among the reasons:

  • Technology makes it possible, and cheaper

  • Key talent is often spread across multiple locations

  • Agility requires more collaborative work and information sharing

  • Experts must be accessible from everywhere

  • Flexible work engages top talent

Without preparation and skills for the virtual world, remote team experiences are usually disappointing, and more times than not, fail to achieve the desired results. This is due to a variety of reasons: lack of trust, rapport, rules of engagement, shared goals, communications process, as well difficulty in navigating across cultural tripwires, or using technology effectively.

Imagine how much more effective your virtual teams could be if they were prepared and skilled - and the business results they would achieve.

An Optimistic Viewpoint:

Successful remote teams know how to overcome barriers of time and place to accomplish extraordinary goals. Rather than viewing the “virtual” nature of their teamwork as a liability, these teams learn how to transform apparent limitations into opportunities for a more enriching collaboration. They can do more with less, utilizing experts and capitalizing on best practices by “collecting” knowledge.

We believe that all virtual teams can learn how to collaborate successfully by developing skills, communications, and trust early in their development. Likewise, we believe it’s never too late to learn how to work together successfully, even if the team has been operational for some time.

This optimism spurred us to research and ultimately create an evidence-based Virtual Team Fitness Model that identifies the key elements required for teams to thrive in ever-changing global work environments.
