  • 2. Meet Me in Cyberspace:
    Conducting Effective Virtual Meetings
    Virtual meetings are essential for the remote team to survive. However, the challenges of virtual conferencing constantly arise: delayed starts, loss of control for the organizer, multi-tasking by members, and disengaged participants.
    Virtual meetings must have a solid agenda and should be organized in order to be effective. By creating a more efficient and organized framework for virtual meetings, your company will reduce the costs associated with low productivity, overlooked deadline, and poor morale.

  • 4. The Communication Connection:
    Getting it Right
    Virtual teams must learn to work together as if they were in the same room. The inability for virtual teams to “connect” can be detrimental to the team and can jeopardize the success of the project.
    Therefore, it is imperative for the team and its leaders to be proactive in developing strategies so that virtual teams are enabled with the right tools to excel in the absence of a face to face environment. This is best outlined using a behavioral assessment process.
    Using a behavioral assessment process approach to improve virtual team communication allows individuals to “read” behavioral cues in a virtual environment. Understanding and responding to these behavioral cues can assist virtual teams in improving and opening up communication, as well as enhance overall group dynamics thereby increasing productivity levels.

  • 6. Making Norms the Norm:
    The Team Operating Agreement
    In a virtual team setting it is critical to have guidelines for how your team is going to work together. These guidelines are called a “Team Operating Agreement”. A Team Operating Agreement defines the set of behavioural norms that the team commits and agrees to abide by. It guides the team’s actions and interactions. Geographic, ethnic, personality and cultural differences can impact the effectiveness of how individuals and teams act, interact and operate.
    Creating a Team Operating Agreement will minimize the potential for conflict, increase open communication which builds a collegial team. It will also build the skills to increase awareness of differences and how to be effective with others you do not see. It will enhance tolerance levels of the entire team while they become a more in-tune cohesive business family.
