6 KEY BUILDING BLOCKSto Ensure Your Virtual Team’s Success
High performing virtual teams aren’t the result of a
sprinkle of magic fairy dust or the whims of fate. They
result from putting the right people together for the
task, and giving them the tools and resources they
need to get the job done. So how do you ensure your
next online collaboration project takes off? Make
sure these 6 building blocks for successful teams are
in place.

Great
Interpersonal
Skills
Self-Directed
Focus on enhancing and
reinforcing individual and
group communication skills,
through training and coaching.
Organize ongoing team building activities
to allow virtual team members to get to know
one another and build trust.
Make the team’s first
meeting face-to-face
(live or via HD video
conference)
Prepare the team to collaborate
3
Create a team charter
4
TEAM
GOAL
CONNECTIONS
PROCEDURES
SUCCESS
CRITERIA
ROLES AND
RESPONSIBILITIES
CHARTER
Involve the whole team in
the creation of the team
charter (it makes a
great first project
task).
Document and monitor progress
5
Make sure progress documentation
happens at regularly scheduled
intervals, and as needed to
overcome roadblocks or
document milestones.
Using an online collaboration platform,
like Redbooth, for managing your team’s
online collaboration makes it easy to keep all team
members apprised of progress of the overall
project and how their individual contributions
support the overall outcome – something that may
not be as evident when members are dispersed.
Recognize achievement
6
Don’t forget to celebrate the end of a
successful project and provide specific
recognition to each team member
personally (face-to-face is best).
Make sure to get the team together as
a whole in person or via video or
conference call to recognize their
achievement.
And remember: what gets recognized gets
repeated — so consider rewarding successful
project teams with a day off, dinner out,
or a creative gift.
