As the leader of a virtual group, you should encourage your team members to participate in decision-making and feel connected to the group’s goals.

I carefully selected my members: Not everyone is ready to work remotely, so it was important to know how to select people who are willing to work in this mode.
Designate a leader for your team: A leader is needed to coordinate all work.
Clear goals: This group should have clear goals, just like a traditional work team. They should be clear and have a time.
I set the basic norms: Everyone must be able to clearly define processes and norms in order to work efficiently and effectively.
Choose the right support technology: There are many platforms that allow us to work remotely, making it easier for our day-to-day work. Skype, Gmail Drive and Intercom are just a few examples.
Regular meetings: If possible, it is a good idea to hold virtual and face-toface meetings. This will allow for better communication and help with keeping track of group work.
A machine can’t replace critical thinking. This is what we need to be able to do when we face decisions that are difficult. We all need to be able to think outside the box, adapt to new situations and invent. Collaboration with ideas that add up will be possible only if we are able to be critical.
You can learn to reflect and identify problems before they impact your team’s performance or people. Consider where the group is going or where they want to go within the context. The reason you are doing the task, the why. Routine should be your enemy number one.
