  • Staying connected with each other -- sending an email won't cut it.
  • The importance of "foundational conversations" -- most Virtual Teams skip these and suffer the consequences.
  • The challenge of making space for different personalities or styles in the team -- you can ignore the differences or you can learn to harness them.

  • and a few more...
