Virtual Team Tips: 7 Ways You're Setting Your Virtual Team Up for Failure

  1. 1. Tip: Virtual teams work better with some 1:1 time#1 They’re all virtual, all the time.
  2. 2. #2 They’re a team in name only. Tip: Team building is even more important for virtual teams. Build it into your meeting agendas.
  3. 3. #3 It’s one long conference call after another. Tip: Video conferences drive more attendee engagement than conference calls. z z z z z
  4. 4. #4 You require everyone to keep the same office hours, regardless of location or position. Tip: Let your virtual team members adjust their work hours to their energy flow and outside of work responsibilities for increased productivity.
  5. 5. #5 You don’t have a shared virtual “water cooler”. Tip: Use an online communication tool that enables the entire team to share conversation and ideas-- regardless of when/where inspiration strikes. Brian: I think we should do a video instead of a poster. Leah: Yes, we can use the music we downloaded. Stacie Brian Leah Michelle Kelly
  6. 6. #6 File sharing is done through email. Downloading... 1 hour 15 min remaining Tip: Centralize the team’s key documents and other files in a shared online folder to avoid version control and mailbox overflow.
  7. 7. #7 In fact, email is your primary project management tool. Tip: Email is great for 1:1 communication, but doesn’t match the capabilities of a collaboration and project management platform.
