What contributes to team members trusting each other in virtual teams? In today's episode, we present a range of thoughts, questions and suggestions to help maintain trust in virtual teams. 55:35mins
The history behind Virtual Team Talk
“If we don’t have the trust, eventually you don’t have a team, you have a bunch of individuals that are sort of working together, but not really working together towards the same purpose.”
A bit about how this project developed, in case you are interested in setting up something similar in either a virtual community, or even within your organisation, as a way of bringing people together, who don’t usually work together.
"What level of trust does my team need, right now, to be effective?"
Calculated Trust: You follow the rules because the cost of not doing so is greater then the value of breaking the rule.
How Trust Emerges
Self-Awareness: What helps us to build trust, how does my behaviour impact how others trust me

In this episode you will hear the voices of Mark Kilby, who’s an agile coach working in a company called Sonatype, which is 95% distributed. They have developers all the way from Thailand to Alaska, working from home.
And Melanie Pürschel who is developing software for remote teams and she’s currently working on the Team Mood Tracker. As a psychologist in IT she’s interested in how to support teams through technology.
And thanks to Terrance, Jochen, Kayt and Kevin for their thoughts and contributions to this project too.
