Virtual Team Building > Build Trust

Build Trust

Trust within virtual teams greatly influences the team's productivity, collaboration methods, and success. Charles Handy, a British management researcher, stated in 1994 in Harvard Business Review, “One of the biggest mistakes a virtual team leader can make is to underestimate the power of trust.”

As any group comes together, interaction is hesitant and only develops as trust builds within the group.

Communication is affected immediately when trust is broken.
