When members of the same team are scattered across time zones and borders, they can feel isolated or disconnected. This can lead to miscommunication, distrust and lack of focus. This course shows the leaders of virtual teams how to bridge the gaps of time and distance to build community, where remote team members have a sense of belonging, responsibility and commitment as if they were working together in the same place. Leaders are introduced to three foundations for building community: communicating effectively, building trusting relationships and keeping team members and goals visible and in focus. Leaders are shown how to establish each foundation, using skills and tools designed specifically for leading in a virtual environment.
