Managing Virtual Teams Blog

Spurred by the rise of technology and globalization, there is a new face to the workforce – Virtual Teams. They are no longer a phenomenon...they are here to stay. Today people routinely work on projects with colleagues who do not work in the same building, the same city, or even the same country. Virtual teams are reshaping the way we do business. But how to create and manage these teams is a skill that many managers have not yet been trained for. How do business leaders and managers establish rapport with employees across continents and cultural differences? Can a strong team be built from widely dispersed people who’ve never met one another? How do leaders and managers keep track of what everybody is doing and when? AIM will help you answer these questions in our Managing Virtual Teams Blog.

This blog is brought to you by AIM Strategies®, a Human Capital Consulting Firm focused on bringing reality to virtual teams. Our CEO, Yael Zofi is a Virtual Teams Expert, Cross Cultural Coach & International Speaker. She, along with colleagues, will share innovative management techniques that link five human connection challenges: managing virtual teams, working across cultures, developing global leaders, working your network and managing up.

Through encouragement from clients and colleagues, Yael designed an accessible and immediate site rich with content on her more than 20 years of experience as an HR professional, researcher and consultant. In this blog, you will hear more about AIM’s work with managing virtual teams and the leaders and managers entrusted to guide them. Yael will rely heavily on the new site to provide this detail to you. New content will also be announced and shared through AIM’s social media venues including this blog and the AIM Strategies® Newsletter, so you can stay up-to-date on managing virtual teams via your preferred information source.

We invite you to tune in, whether as an active participant or passive observer―just make sure you tune in. We will be introducing a variety of topics to reach the multi-faceted interests of our readership. It's a "something in it for everyone" design that has our team energized and offers a broader range of industry specific content below. Enjoy exploring the ever-evolving world of managing virtual teams!
