Virtual Team Scenario

"Leading a virtual team requires more than working on the team's project agenda. Teams which are unable to meet in person frequently because members are distributed geographically need additional help to support their team process so that they can act and feel like a team." (Kimball, n.d.). The characteristics lacking in this team are:

? Collaborative climate
? Unified commitment
? Principled leadership

At this point Jim is merely observing what is going on and has taken a back seat to fulfilling his leadership responsibilities. Jim should definitely intervene. Right now the team is operating under the absence of effective leadership which could only cause more confusion, dissention and added pressure. In my opinion the level of intervention must start from within the internal parameters. The form of internal intervention within this team's infrastructure should result in task orientation methods instead of relational seeing that members of the team are already falling behind on project.
