“Today it isn’t uncommon for companies to have as many as 50 percent of their employees working on virtual teams,” says Lepsinger, author of Virtual Team Success: A Practical Guide for Working and Leading from a Distance. Further research has revealed that 27 percent of virtual teams in another global study were not fully performing. We think this number is actually much higher.

Do these problems in your virtual teams sound familiar?

  • Lack of clear goals, direction or priorities when team members are geographically at different sites and time zones
  • Lack of clear roles among team members (and a lack of understanding the impact of their work on other team members
  • Lack of cooperation and trust when face-to-face contact isn’t possible
  • Lack of engagement which arises from dynamic, personal interactions

However, if leveraged the right way, virtual teams increase efficiency, strengthen client relationships, reduce your organization’s carbon footprint, and save money. Our experts in Vitural Teamwork will be glad to show you how to resolve the problems listed above and show you how to lead individuals as well as teams with many miles and time zones between you.
