Maintaining strong, productive relationships with clients and collaborators can be difficult when talking about remote work. Nevertheless, these days it has become the new normal to have work relationships – sometimes over the course of several years – with people we have never met in person.
The members of a virtual team working remotely are faced with new challenges both at an organizational and a personal level. The dynamics of interpersonal relationships depend on the personalities of people, not their professional skills (‘hard skills’) or expertise. You can form a team made up of the most talented individuals, but this will not guarantee their performance, when they are forced to work together, particularly remotely. The GR8 Remote Teams tool provides important information with regard to the efficiency of a team when working remotely, the way members interact with one another and, at the same time, presents the optimal conditions in which that team can reach the highest level of productivity. The assessment is aimed at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of any team and provides development suggestions.
