Lynda Gratton: Raising Performance and Collaboration in Virtual Teams

What it takes to be successful in a team that is co-located is not the same as what it takes to be successful in a virtual team. Virtual teams are more likely to be motivated and energized if they have a great task that pulls the team together. Second, after a virtual team has worked together for a while, relationships begin to break down. To counter this, face-to-face or video-enabled meetings should be scheduled from time to time, to pull the team together.
