One of the most challenging aspects of being a manager is leading people who are remote to you. Sometimes it's one team member being offsite; sometimes entire teams are spread across the country or even the globe, or even just across a corporate campus. All these situations are examples of "virtual" teams...and managing a virtual team is notably harder than managing a group that are co-located. And, these suggestions work well for project teams that may be in the same location but are matrixed together.

This cast addresses the special difficulties virtual teams present. First, we briefly discuss teams in general, and then we outline the three specific steps a 'virtual' manager can take to turn her workgroup into a team.

  • How do I manage a virtual team?
