You’ve worked very hard to put together a top notch team. They are armed with the best tools and technology to propel your business. But did you know that even the best teams fall short when it comes to managing their virtual teams?
Because once you are more than 50ft apart, you begin to act like a virtual team. Whether you work in the same building but on a different floor, in the same city but in different locations, in different cities or countries, or have telecommuters on your team, you face a unique set of challenges.
Time zones, lack of face-to -face interaction, travel budget restrictions, miscommunication, linguistic challenges and cultural differences all impact the team’s ability to be effective.
At Virtual Team Builders, we know that it takes more than technology to connect your virtual team. For a virtual team to be successful, the focus needs to be on the people, rather than the tools. Unfortunately, more often than not virtual team members commonly feel disconnected or overlooked.
Virtual Team Builders has developed a Corporate Certification program that will ensure that the managers of your virtual teams are poised for success and are armed with the knowledge to overcome any hurdle. And that your team is engaged, productive and feels…well…part of the team!

- Setting the Ground Work
- The Communication Connection: Getting it Right
- How to Optimize Virtual Team Meetings
