Vital Virtual Teamwork Skills

Understanding the virtual teamwork skills gap is the first step to overcoming it. Creating a culture of effective teamwork requires a set of skills and a common language for ALL employees, and these are 100% learnable— no matter where employees are located.

It starts with trust—specifically vulnerability-based trust. By acknowledging our own human failures and foibles while appreciating the strengths of our colleagues, we unlock the other behaviors that lead to successful teams. #VulnerabilityIsAStrength #TrustIsGlue

Closing the Virtual Teamwork Skills Gap White Paper

A Framework for Team Challenges

Whenever your team faces challenges—say, not everyone has committed to an idea—what’s your framework for working through it? What questions do you ask?

Employees are empowered to apply their skills on a day-to-day basis when tied to a simple, memorable, and actionable framework and through a common language. When employees at all levels are equipped with the essential skills of effective teamwork, they can move seamlessly from team to team—knowing what it takes to build an effective one—and immediately begin contributing to collective results. And when challenges inevitably arise, they know what to do.

Questions like “Why is that so?” and “Did we not fully listen to and debate each other’s ideas?” allow the team to quickly get back on track. Ultimately, the absence of any of The Five Behaviors® can cripple teams and organizations.

Knowing what to do when facing team challenges

Self Awareness and Team Dynamics

Each of us approaches teamwork in a unique way, and those differences in perspective and personality are part of what helps teams thrive. They allow us to debate and discuss concepts and ideas and to uncover one another’s blind spots.

So when each employee develops their self-awareness around their own personalities and behaviors, they become empowered to “team” in a way that feels meaningful—and therefore memorable—to them.

How are you creating the space to discover in what ways you show up and motivate others to do the same, so that your whole team can rise together and achieve true cohesion?

Leveraging self-awareness to show up for your team

Building A Collaborative Workplace through Trust

When we lack that interpersonal foundation of trust to stand on, we find it more difficult to do the hard, but necessary, work of being an effective team member. And this starts with each of us embracing the behaviors that foster effective communication and collaboration in the workplace. These behaviors don’t necessarily already exist in every one of us— especially when we’ve been working alone in our basements for over a year!—but they are skills we can learn.

Fundamentally, effective teamwork requires us to be vulnerable—sharing our opinions, freely debating ideas with colleagues, holding one another accountable, and knowing when to ask for help and when to say we’re sorry.

One of the core behaviors of the Five Behaviors model is Trust.

Developing Your Virtual Teamwork Skills

When was the last time you did a virtual teamwork check-in?
Employees that lack effective virtual teamwork skills threaten both the trajectory of their organization’s recovery and the success of long-term remote and flexible work.

Teams are comprised of individuals, each of whom needs the skills to make effective teamwork a success. And we know that in the workplaces of today, most people are on more than one team. That’s why it’s so critical for everyone to have a clear picture of what individuals and teams are experiencing. Leaders, especially, must know their teams.

The Five Behaviors White Paper

Fundamentally, effective #Teamwork requires us to be vulnerable. That means sharing our opinions, freely debating ideas with colleagues, holding one another accountable, and knowing when to ask for help and when to say we’re sorry.

But avoiding tension, conflict, and difficult conversations can stunt a team’s growth, especially when the groundwork of trust—where mistakes can be made, forgiveness is granted, and our vulnerabilities aren’t used against us—has eroded or, worse, never existed from the start. #TrustIsGlue
