Patrick Lencioni shares the 3 most common mistakes of Virtual Teams

Patrick Lencioni is the author of several best selling business management books including "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" and "Death By Meeting".

In his February 2009 e-newsletter Lencioni outlines 3 mistakes a Virtual Team needs to avoid if it is to be successful:

  • MISTAKE # 1:  Underestimating the challenges of being dispersed.
  • MISTAKE # 2:  Wasting the precious time you (the Virtual Team) do spend together.
  • MISTAKE # 3:  Failing to master the conference call (one of the most loathed and underestimated of all corporate activities)

Learn how you can avoid all 3 mistakes in my new Virtual Team Leader training course.  CLICK HERE for more information.
