The world is facing unprecedented economic challenges amid the ongoing corona virus pandemic. Many employers have begun instituting 'work from home' or flexible hours policies to refine the business strategies of their enterprises. As a result, more and more people are finding themselves working in isolation from their colleagues - and perhaps more importantly, from their managers.
To be fair, this is not a new phenomenon - indeed, the composition of teams in numerous industry sectors has been changing for many years due to the impacts of globalisation in the business world. So that nowadays, it is almost unheard of for companies to have 'localised' teams - and team members are instead located in countless countries, with different time-zones, nationalities, cultures and languages. However, the advent of the corona virus has greatly accelerated the need for people to work 'remotely' and yet still function effectively both individually, and as part of a team. This development has brought with it new and greater challenges for managers. In addition, it seems very likely that this approach is here to stay - and will become the 'new normal' once the effects of the pandemic have receded.
"Virtual" teams are no different to Normal teams!
It may come as a bit of a surprise, but distance doesn’t change the fundamental structure and operation of a team. A global virtual team is [still] first and foremost a team — just because yours is distributed across one or many countries, doesn't mean you should discard existing practices about how the most effective teams operate.
