Ask yourself this question: Why does our organization have an office? When I left an executive position at one of the largest media companies in North America to start a business, the first to-do item on my list was to find an office. Boy, was I wrong.

Resolving Team Member Conflicts

 

Conflicts are a part of any project team and can occur more often with virtual teams as it is sometimes easier to have a conflict with someone that is not working alongside you. I have found that conflicts occur more often on those virtual project teams that have not had the opportunity to get to know each other beforehand (a bit of socializing before getting down to project work!)

When a conflict cannot be resolved by the two or more individuals who are having a conflict, it is essential that the project manager step in to help resolve the conflict. For virtual meetings to resolve conflict I prefer to use a virtual meeting platform where we can (ideally) see each other rather than just talking over a phone.

 

Follow these best practice steps to collaboratively resolve conflicts on the virtual project team:
