Once the wave of the future, today’s organizations now embrace the benefits of a virtual workforce. But as if interpersonal relationships and teamwork aren’t already tough enough, virtual teams face unique challenges, including the absence of nonverbal cues, delayed communication, language barriers, and cultural differences.

These issues can have a significant impact on organizations, from decreased productivity and higher turnover to missed creative opportunities and a lack of trust. But no matter how big the challenge, virtual teams are here to stay. So how can you set the stage for success?
