One definition regarding teams is being in association for a joint action. It is important that teams understand they work together to complete tasks. Everyone on the team does not think alike or have the same viewpoints on experiences. However, when the diversity of thought combines with the skillset.... great things can happen. Embracing the diversity on a team is the rock solid foundation to building a strong team that does not fold under pressure.
Teams should respect what makes individuals on their team good at what they do. They may be great organizers. Others have great optimism. There may be one that excels in communication while another is amazing with documentation. Distance has presented us all with the challenge of adapting to our teammate's virtual personality. Those that shine in person may struggle online while those that struggle in person may excel online. Acknowledgement, respect, and virtual rapport are necessary tools to adapting to our current normal.
