To stay ahead of competition and thrive in times of disruption, organizations need to have a talent pipeline ready to succeed in our global virtual environments. In a recent study, while 88% of respondents agreed that virtual teams are critical for daily work, only 15% of virtual team leaders self-identified as effective and less than 22% received training on global virtual teamwork. Building high-performing remote teams requires focused awareness and intention by managers beyond logging in for online meetings.
