Developing purpose in virtual teams

A recent survey concluded that 85% of business professionals work on at least one virtual team, and many of them will never physically meet the people on their team. When we don’t build meaningful connections between team members, virtual teamwork can get a lower priority, no matter how important the work is. As leaders, how do we build commitment and alignment when people aren’t connected? Developing purpose in virtual teams can be the answer, and this practical training shows your how.
