How to Manage Conflict in Virtual Teams

  • Cultural Difference – the farther away you are from the other party, the greater the difference in culture is.
  • Time zones – be conscious of the time and make sure it is feasible for both sides.
  • It is well worth it to bring people together when working on high stakes projects. It lets you know how well everyone works together and it accelerates the project.
  • Do regular check-ins.
  • Provide cultural awareness – use organisational values as a framework when talking about cultural differences.
