Those who work in an "open space" tend to underestimate the benefits of being able to provide immediate and direct feedback and sense of the "vibe" of the workspace. In dispersed teams, communication is often a challenge. Regularly scheduled meetings, despite the advanced technical means available (e.g. online teleconference apps), can be logistically difficult, if only due to the time differences. Dispersed teams have to deal with potential problems related to a sense of isolation.
Our workshops can teach you the the reliable communication methods. Together with our consultant you can develop the "communication protocols" that set the rules for the use of phones, e-mails, messengers, teleconference apps, and group management systems for your team. It's worth noting that "virtual meetings" online even have a different agenda and flow than the traditional conference room meetings.
