Blake asks "What is the number one requirement for success on a virtual team?"
Like other relationships, it is trust. The problem is that trust is more challenging to develop virtually.
A team leader needs to manage first impressions for trust to develop quickly. Figuring out ways for team members to share who they are as people is essential and is more than just sharing titles and business roles. Facilitate rapport building and useful dialogue.
Although it may feel like a waste of time, the task the team is challenged to carry out must come second to teambuilding in order to get the best out of the group.
