Improving Remote Team Performance
Working with a global finance organisation for a team of senior leaders spread globally to make performance gains through increased collaboration and a collective goal.
Effective teamwork is difficult to foster in localised departments let alone the international, multi time zone arenas that are present in many remote teams in professional services.
Without the luxury of water cooler discussions and spontaneous interactions, remote teams often require a far more sophisticated understanding of high performing team work. Competitive markets make teamwork a vital profit enabler.
In an industry which requires high levels of problem solving and innovation collaboration is king. However, remote teams lack the ease and benefit of face-to-face communication.
Poor Team Performance
Remote teams often fail to create the incremental gains seen in other teams. 14 per cent of remote workers admit struggling to stay motivated is their biggest challenge.
Lack of Team Identity
Many teams lack a clear collective goal, method of working and common language.
Low Levels of Genuine Collaboration
More than one in five remote workers state that collaborating/communicating is their biggest struggle with remote work.

How we helped
Our insistence is that “teamwork becomes easy once you know how difficult it is”. In order to unite a multinational remote based team we created the following structure for a highly interactive team building day.
13 senior leaders specialising in global risk assessment located throughout the EMEA region set about the task of creating a magazine communicating their proposition to other departments within their organisation.
