How to connect on human level in a remote environment?

🙌 How to connect on human level when working in virtual teams?

Creating strong teams is hard enough when working in a collocated environment. So, it goes extra hard when you are physically distributed.

When working with teams at Tochka 2 and we go into deep dive discussions (workshop that works on real cases/issues), there is always the case of “there is one guy in another country that’s causing a lot of trouble”. There are times where two sub-teams are in storming phase for 5 years.

Our suggestion is to connect on human level first. Ideas vary – use cameras, make off-site meetings, talk about non-work stuff, etc.
