Achieving Results through Virtual Teams

As organizations continue the trend towards virtual workplaces and teams, managers quickly discover that leading teams with dispersed team members poses new challenges. Only 5% of companies today believe they have strong digital leaders in place (Deloitte). Virtual team members often report that they enjoy the autonomy and flexibility that working from home or a remote office may offer, but they also complain that they often feel both micro-managed and isolated from other team members.

Virtual leaders must attend to relationship, reliability, results, and recognition issues as they strive to communicate, take risks, and build connections across virtual distance. The rewards of getting this aspect of leadership right are immeasurable, from tangible cost-savings to enhanced productivity, increased innovation, and high levels of engagement. But these rewards only happen with committed attention and execution on the part of your organization's leaders.
