As workplaces become more distributed, managers often find themselves managing remote or virtual team members. This geographic distance sets virtual leaders up to make five critical management mistakes that can reduce productivity, derail teamwork, undermine organizational loyalty, and increase turnover. Without team agreements about expectations and processes, working on a virtual team can feel like floating on a rudderless boat in the ocean.

Remote team members may sense that they are “out of sight, out of mind.” The virtual leader may unintentionally communicate, “No news is good news,” or assume their expectations are clear (“Read my mind”). Failing to leverage appropriate technology can result in boring, unproductive virtual meetings (“Listen up – I’m talking”). Trust may be damaged by frequent micro-management as the disconnected remote managers wonders, “What the heck are they up to?”
