Leading virtually and developing teams remotely is a very challenging task for managers at all levels. Being a member of an international team is equally complex.
leaders experience face-to-face meetings and close personal interaction. But in today’s business world communication has changed drastically. Business is global — new communication media and the Internet offer increasing opportunities to reach out to distant countries and cultures. We may be speaking a common language and often have to communicate using a second language, so misunderstandings are frequent. And, we all have different cultural assumptions and perspectives so it's no wonder that meaning becomes clouded. The challenge to communicate clearly is enormous.
