[Virtual Team Builder Blog]
Last week, we discussed the crucial matter of trust within a virtual environment. In particular, we explored swift trust, a phenomenon that takes places when a group of diverse individuals come to quickly trust one another because they are all working toward a common goal. We saw that swift trust tends to develop in a virtual environment where team members do not have the opportunity to build trust in a more traditional manner. We also mentioned that though swift trust is important, it is a temporary phenomenon that holds a team together until a stronger, more trusting bond can form. This week, we’ll explore exactly how virtual team members can transform their temporary bonds of trust into deeper, longer lasting, and more effective relationships. Specifically, we’ll examine ways to develop interpersonal trust.
