With increased globalization and the rapid growth of telecommuting and remote work, teams are becoming more geographically dispersed and many now rarely or never meet in person.
Our researchers found that introducing a new perspective — polarity thinking™ — helps these virtual teams improve their performance over time. The polarity approach provides a shift in mindset, skillset, and practice that helps teams of remote workers manage the unsolvable tensions that are present — and even exacerbated — at a distance.
In this paper, we identify 3 critical factors that you can’t ignore when it comes to helping virtual teams work effectively across boundaries, functions, cultures, geographies, and time zones.
