Trust and respect in a team
October 7, 2011 by Bernadette Emsenhuber
Good teamwork and an efficient team depends on once attitude and motivation. A chain is no stronger than its weakest link (Theory of Constraints).
One thing, she mentioned besides others, is ‘good communication’. Scureman said, that the only way to solve this would be to keep a constant open dialogue.
Especially for distributed teams it is difficult to keep the dialogue open. Team members are often spread over countries or even continents. And phone or e-mail can’t always bridge the physical distance between team members to ask and answer questions, whenever it is possible.
Keeping the dialogue open does also mean, that people can talk to each other in a team, when they have the desire to. So you need communication tools to bridge local and temporal differences, which allow asynchronous communication.
