Virtual and remote team leadership is an area we specialize in given experience in this realm. I myself was a virtual team leader , with staff based across ten countries. When I started my role as a Program Manager years ago I asked about how the team got together. The response was that they hadn't in 30 years! Needless to say one of the first things I did was find budget to bring people together for a short 2 day meeting. Over the course of the next few years these meetings became foundational in strengthening the team and accelerating results due to the synergies, relationships and connections formed.
In past posts I've looked at virtual team management issues which you can explore here.
