Leading Virtual Teams

Several years ago, I gave a presentation to ASTD on guiding principles for leading virtual teams. This morning, a participant in a virtual class reminded me of the principles, and I thought it might be useful to post them here:

1. Be proactive
2. Focus on relationships before tasks
3. Seek clarity and focus early on
4. Create a sense of order and predictability
5. Be a cool-headed, objective problem solver
6. Develop shared operating agreements
7. Give team members personal attention
8. Respect the challenges of the virtual environment
9. Recognize the limits of available technologies
10. Stay people-focused
