Building and Managing Virtual Teams is a hot topic over the last few years. Organizations and individuals are now much more likely to work from home, from their car, at alternative locations, or even on the other side of the world, which means managers might rarely see workers.
Consequently, supervisors that are asked to lead these virtual teams not only face the usual leadership dilemmas, they also have to be able to adapt to these challenges in an environment where the rules have changed.
Managing virtual teams requires a different approach. It means developing new skills, communication methodologies and techniques to get the best out of teams and improve organizational and personal performance.
